Nicosia Sosta Tre Santi Nero d'Avola Riserva 2012

Sosta Tre Santi Nero d’Avola is the ‘Cru’ of our vineyards in Contrada Bonincontro (Vittoria), created from a blend of the principal Sicilian grape variety with a small percentage of Syrah. The careful selection of the grapes in the vineyard and in the winery, the slow maceration and long refinement process makes for a red wine that is full-bodied and structured, with a rich and irrepressible aromatic hear.

Colour

Bouquet

Intense, spicy and fruity, bursting with notes of jam and marked balsamic overtones.

Flavour
