Lamùri d'Almerita

Lamùri: or we could say, reasons of the heart. The history of Tasca d'Almerita is the history of a family, it tells the story of people, passion and projects. Projects as growing Nero d'Avola, which long ago sunk its roots in the hills of Regaleali. The composition of the soil and a unique micro-climate are the substances of this terrain, passed on to the ancient vines, combining freshness and elegance with the natural richness of Sicilian wines.

NERO D’AVOLA

NERO D’AVOLA

Despite its long history, the Nero d'Avola grape has only become widely known and loved in recent years; now, this native Sicilian variety has reached great heights all over Italy and the world. Passion and dedication lie behind our red monovarietal, starting with the low yields in the vineyard which guarantee a high-quality vintage of notable concentration. By ageing it partly in wood and parly in steel vats, we can supplement the fresh fruity notes of a young wine with elegant spices and liquorice which bode very well for further maturing.
