Colpasso Nero d'Avola DOC Sicilia Appassimento, 2020

Italy

Grape Variety

Nero d’Avola

In the 8th century BCE, Sicily was part of the Greek Empire. The Colpasso Nero d’Avola label is a tribute to Greek mythology – specifically to Dionysus, the god of winemaking, grape harvest and dance. For Appassimento, Nero d’Avola grapes were picked mid-September and then dried for 3-4 weeks, losing 30% of their weight. These are then blended with fresh grapes, producing a wine which is vibrant in colour with ripe blackberry and blueberry aromas. It is smooth with more ripe dark fruits on the palate and was matured in barrel.
