Product information

Bold, irresistibly fruity red, bursting with aromas of blackcurrant, black cherries, black pepper and a hint of cloves.

About this Wine
The bold, fruity of this wine is all thanks to the black grape of Avola, brought to Sicily by the Greeks when wine was drunk from amphorae, not boxes. Goes down well with red meat (the gamier the better), or lentils and mushrooms if you're veggie.

Wine a box and good, wow!

Was really surprised at the quality of this wine. I, like most, had a view of wine in a box and this has changed my opinion. The first glass was average and I was a little disappointed, but once opened,it allows the wine to breath and the second (and third...you get the idea) glass was very drinkable. Definitely recommend this if you dont want to open a bottle and drink it in one night.
