Description

Nero d'Avola has long been the most important grape on the Italian island of Sicily, thriving in the heat of the Mediterranean sunshine. The vineyards of Colomba Bianca are made up of distinct soil and climate conditions and range from sea-level up to 700 metres above sea level, each terroir imparting subtle complexity into the wine. Their Syrah vineyards are carefully cultivated with low yields. 

For their Lumari Nero d'Avola-Syrah, hand picked grapes are macerated on skins at low temperatures before fermentation in small, stainless steel tanks for approximately 12 days, followed by four months rest in tank. The result is a wine of intense blackberry and violet scents. A juicy, fruity palate with supple tannins and wonderful structure, all wrapped up with a warm and spicy finish. Try with eggplant and tomato stew, chilli con carne, barbecue or smoked dishes, or smoked cheeses.

Established in 1970, Colomba Bianca is the largest Sicilian grower cooperative and the biggest Italian producer of organic wine. Despite their size, they engage a philosophy of micro-viticulture and micro-winemaking to ensure the ultimate precision, quality and expression of terroir. 

Suitable for Vegans & Vegetarians
