Nero Oro has been made in response to the recent and rapidly growing demand for captivating, modern styles of wine that can cope with tastes that change over the generations.
Nero Oro is aimed in particular at Millennials, which you may be able to guess from its unusual, extravagant label. The name Nero Oro comes from “nero” meaning “black”, referring to Nero d’Avola and “oro” which is means “gold”, which is a reference to the gold of the Grillo grape – the king and queen of Sicily’s grape varieties.
Nero Oro wines suit all tastes – the Nero d’Avola Appassimento is full-flavoured and extremely fruity and the Grillo Appassimento is well rounded, with hints of honey and at the same time fresh, with lively fruit.
Both the white and red are made using the Appassimento technique, where a proportion of the grapes are left to dry on the vine and a proportion are dried on racks in the sun.
A riserva Nero d’Avola completes the range, which is well-structured, yet still very approachable.
