Borgo Fulvia Nero D’Avola 2017


DESCRIPTION

Nero d’Avola is one Sicily’s pride, it is a varietal capable of being dry-farmed, and it loves the heat. many of the oldest Nero d’Avola vineyards are Alberello pruned or “head-trained” close to the ground so that they are resistant to high winds. This method expresses some unique characteristics; one is a more fruit-forward, opulent and black-fruit driven style that offers up coffee and chocolate flavors from aging in oak barrels, and the other style is much leaner and more elegant with zippy red cherry fruit flavors, herbal notes
