Nero d’Avola

Estate Sallier de La Tour

Nero d’Avola

Vintage 2020

The low yields guarantee a high quality and concentrated harvest. Choosing to age wine partly in wood and partly in steel barrels, allows us to combine fresh and fruited notes of a young wine, to extremely elegant spicy and liquorish aromas, which are usually indicators of good aging potential through time.
