Quick Overview

Sicily can be such a happy hunting ground for wines that combine drinkability, interest and good value. There’s three ticks here. This is savoury and minerally, but lush with dark cherries, spice, floral top notes, and maybe a few of the old cheeky black jellybeans. Love the smooth silty tannin, pitch perfect acidity, and the light spiciness to finish. It’s only just medium bodied, almost delicate for a Nero, but gee this is good drinking.
So sophisticated at the price.

Product Description

Now simply labelled Nero d'Avola, this wine was previously the called Rosso L'Isolano. It is still 100% Nero d'Avola from near Menfi on the Sicilian coast (in province of Agrigento). The leaner soils and cooling coastal influence here tend to produces a more delicate style of Nero d'Avola, factors that first attracted Justin Bubb to the region, "Most of the time I find Nero d'Avola in Sicilia made in this really ripe, high octane style and the wines lacked freshness and punch. This is picked at 13 Baume when this vineyard shows best varietal character."

The wine still has a lot of Mediterranean about it, though its agile mouthfeel and supple, almost Beaujolais-like fleshy feel make this quite a unique example to the variety. Perhaps this shouldn't be a surprise; the wine has plenty of semi-carbonic influence (including 10% whole bunches) and is aged in massive French oak casks for 10 months before bottling.      


Made by winemaker Justin Bubb, who’s now better known for being the husband of Anna Pooley. Just joking
