Exactly what I wanted after a hot dusty day in the vineyards. Very bright cherry, black pepper, juicy acidity, light bodied, only 13.2% ABV

Broc Cellars homage to COS, Nero d'Avola done in amphora + concrete. Fresh & lively.

Aged in beeswax 🐝 amphora. The best Nero D’Avola from CA I’ve ever tried. Not that the bar is that high 😂

Wow. Best Nero D'Avola I've had in some time. Spicy, sumptuous yet elegant, and perfect for a picnic. Thank you, Chris Brockaway!

Addictive, delicious, spicy, cranberry, bright, pairs well with Mediterranean flavors.

If you told me this was from Sicily, I wouldn't blink twice. Juicy, black/purple fruits and orange zest. Rather more acid than most wines from Vittoria. Chewy tannins
