Ciello Rosso Nero d’Avola, Sicily, Italy

Low sulphur Nero d'Avola, certified organic red wine: classic flavours of dark almost roasted fruits – think black cherries and red and dark plums. There’s some liquorice and then the finish hints at coffee and bitter chocolate. Only tiny amount of sulphur added before bottling, so you get this red wine as natural as possible.

Food Match: Sausages, pasta or mushroom dishes

A confident wine in an unassuming way

Nero d'Avola is the grape of Sicily, sometimes likened to Shiraz but without the fuss and heaviness. This is smooth with delicious fruit and some little piquant notes to amuse your taste buds, a glass will welcome you home after a busy day at work. In the words of my husband..."Hello, this is nice wine"
