This wine sings. It has an upbeat and melodic voice that makes you glad to have met it and happy deep down in your soul. Nero d’Avola is Sicily’s most important grape variety, but there are too many that are cheaply made and use clumsy oak to cover the flaws. This is unoaked and packed with vibrant red fruits: cherry, strawberry and raspberry. Try it and see if doesn’t make you sing too.
The Galfano family have owned land in Sicily for more than two centuries. Set amongst 100 year old olive trees in the Marsala region, the winery has been passed down from generation to generation and is now run by Alessandra and Fabrizio Galfano. Their mission statement is to make unforgettable wines and they do this by handpicking (and judging by their labels some angels may even pick up the secateurs from time to time) only Sicily’s native grape varieties and by using traditional methods, organic fertiliser, natural yeast and no herbicides or oak. Sicily’s cleansing winds, reliable climate and wide temperature range makes it a perfect place to make fresh and fruity reds. This Nero d’Avola is completely unoaked and comes from 40 year old vines.
