Its name is Sicilian for “L’Amore,” the Love that Tasca d’Almerita puts into its work. A selection of Nero d’Avola grapes grown on high hills, fresh and full of primary aromas, without ever yielding to the temptations of excess ripening, it differs from the variety cultivated in warmer parts of Sicily. Barriques of different ages give soft and elegant tannins, with a wood note that is never invasive.
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.
