Morgante Don Antonio Nero d’Avola Riserva Sicilia DOC

The pursuit of excellence has always been the philosophy of the Morgante family, situated in Grotte, a small town in the province of Agrigento, found about 21 kilometres from the coast and the Valley of the Temples. The various vines are scattered among a charming landscape interspersed with natural hills and small valleys placed at different altitudes varying from 350 to 550 meters above sea level.
The Nero d’Avola Don Antonio is a prized red wine and the most fitting and emblematic example pf this grape variety: it took years of sacrifice, work and sweat to honor the name of Sicily, respecting the territory and enhancing its peculiarities. A difficult area due to the climate, scorched by the sun and poor in water, to be worked with the hands, with sweat, but a territory capable of giving splendid wines, such as this one: unique structure, magnificently integrated with the final tannin, absolutely pleasant and soft.
