This unique, organic red was grown on the volcanic soils of the beautiful Lipari Islands north of Sicily. It has southern Italian red cherry fruit flavour combined with surprisingly “Burgundian” freshness and vitality; true volcanic minerality.
“The 2016 Nero Ossidiana is a blend of mostly Corinto Nero (90%) with Nero d’Avola in a supporting role. This is a delightful wine that shows the glossy intensity and shine of a Burgundian grape, despite its origins in one of the warmest and most extreme islands in the sun-soaked heart of the Mediterranean Sea. Fruit for this wine is grown in the Aeolian Archipelago. Polished tones of bright berry and cassis give the wine lots of energy and buoyancy. The results are elegant, floral and very easy on the nose and mouth. I think this wine is just terrific, especially with a grilled sausage. Some 12,000 bottles were put out.” 94/100pts Wine Advocate
