Nero d’Avola/Merlot – have you tried it? Rock Wines produces a collection of wines from around Italy, and this is one of our favs. Nero d’Avola translates as "Black of Avola”, referring to the small, dark skinned grapes that flourish in Sicily’s hot Mediterranean climate. The addition of Merlot has softened the blend, making it more approachable in its youth, a genius move by the winemakers. Try it with a hearty stew this coming winter, you won’t be disappointed.
From the east of Sicily, 400 meters above sea level,.
Rock Wines are built on a foundation of quality, creativity and fun. "Each wine is a funny part of my life" says founder Federico Migliorin whose collection of Italian wines are a cosmopolitan mix of high quality and energy.
