Bronze, International Wine & Spirit Competition, 2019

A sumptuously rich, blackberry and spice red using Sicily’s prized Nero d’Avola. Not only that, it’s from one of the island’s highest, oldest vineyards. Neglected since the earthquake of 1968, it has been lovingly restored and grows top grapes.

Save the vines and enjoy a gorgeous, rich red! Poggioreale used to be an important wine village in Sicily. It was where Dino Taschetta grew up, like generations of his family before him. After an earthquake reduced Poggioreale to ruins in 1968, a new town was built further down the hill and the vineyards above the village, the highest and oldest in Sicily, were then neglected for decades. Now, with many of the island’s oldest Nero d’Avola vines grubbed up, there’s even more reason to treasure what’s left. Dino recently returned to the family estate and began to restore the vineyard. His first vintage was 2017 and he was in urgent need of a customer. Our Buyer tasted the wine and reserved it all. A year later, we’ve returned for more.
