One of the few organic producers in Sicily, the Vesco family have owned and operated plantings on the hills of Alcamo, just inland from Palermo for 10 years with a focus towards minimal intervention and sustainable viticulture. Incisive and energetic, this perfumed, fresh nero d'avola is a million miles away from the overripe styles which are commonplace in Sicily. Instead of being mature with deep rooted tannins, this nero is novel; but not a fluke. Showing dark fruit, green coffee bean with a lick of cocoa, rounded out with a distinct but pleasant spiciness. A more delicate approach is needed for this wine, try pairing with roasted miso pork belly and a side of steamed pak choy.
