Gorghi Tondi Coste A Preola Nero d'Avola Sicilia DOC 2021
Gorghi Tondi Coste A Preola is the emblem of the beauty of a unique territory suited to quality viticulture for millennia. Bright ruby red colour with violet reflections. Complex and pleasantly spicy nose with hints of black cherries and wild berries. Rich and intense palate with well-balanced tannins and an excellent persistence.
Fun Fact: Coste a Preola is the name chosen to pay tribute to Sicily and its biodiversity: this is the name of the vineyards' area, located in this western part of the island, close to the Mediterranean Sea and to the WWF Nature Reserve Lake Preola and Gorghi Tondi.
