Black cherry, tobacco + wild herbs (think, Ricola) are the stars of the wine. Bright acidity and smooth tannins are the supporting actors. Sikelè Nero d'Avola is aged in concrete, which captures the freshness of the fruit. Marilina and Federica Paternò, make natural wine that is approachable.
Pairing: Pasta Bolognese with Turkey and Calabrian Chile Peppers
