100% Nero d'Avola
Sicily has a history of wine-making that dates back to ancient times. According to legend, it was Dionysus (aka Bacchus) who brought pleasure to mankind, and wine to Sicily. Blessed with consistently bright sunshine and reliably moderate rainfall, Sicily’s classic Mediterranean climate is ideally suited to the production of organic wine grapes. Lamura is Sicily, is organic, is totally pure, made from exclusively what mother nature gave. The vineyards are located in Valle del Belice, a hilly land in the Western part of Sicily. Organically grown grapes and special care throughout the entire production process with care for the environment. Nero d'Avola is "the most important red wine grape in Sicily" and is one of Italy's most important indigenous varieties. It’s named after Avola in the far south of Sicily (“Black of Avola”), and its wines are compared to New World Shirazes, with sweet tannins and plum or peppery flavours. Nero d’Avola is one of the full-bodied wines of the world in the same boldness as Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinotage, and Syrah.
Hand-harvest takes place in September, preferably during the night, to preserve the healthiness of the grapes. The grapes are left to mature on the vines as much as possible, to obtain the characteristic aromas of mature fruits and jam.
Intense red color, with aromas of ripe fruit and spices surging out of the glass. The palate is smooth with a good persistence. Perfect with veal, roast chicken and duck as well as tomato-based dishes and grilled Sicilian tuna.
