WINE CLUB February 2024 | 2022 Nero d’Avola | American

A Balistreri first!

Nero d’Avola is one of our favorite Sicilian varietals, and we finally had the opportunity to make our own! Grown in the Central Valley of California, crushed and made here in Denver, this is a wine not to be missed. Aromas of juicy raspberry compliment the creamy hints of vanilla from time in partial new oak. This enhances the palate, giving the Nero a lovely texture and smooth finish!

What is Nero d’Avola?

Widely grown all over Sicily, this grape’s name literally translates to “Black of Avola”; Avola being a small town in Sicily where the grape originated from. It’s known for its depth of flavor and color, making it a popular grape to blend with other varietals. However, Winemaker John is partial to letting Nero d’Avola stand on its own to really appreciate its beauty.
