Add to favourites

Avulisi is the top wine from the Santa Tresa estate in Sicily. The name Avulisi comes from the Sicilian dialect and means “inhabitant of Avola”.

It is a highlight of Sicilian wines, made with the best Nero d’Avola grapes from a beautiful single vineyard. The old vines, planted in 1964, produce extremely low yields not exceeding 30 hl/ha, which guarantees grapes full of fine aromas and flavours. Aged 12 months in barrique, the Avulisi shows a multifaceted character, expressing the pure style of Nero d’Avola.

This is a sumptuous, well structured, perfectly balanced and elegant red. The integrated vinification technique results in rounder wines with greater volume, richness and complexity, a defined aromatic character, and a lovely silky, well integrated finish. The combination of integrated vinification, old vines and organic cultivation gives a concentrated wine that has authentic flavours of the grapes and the terroir. The nose is a wonderful combination of black cherries, chocolate, almonds and spices. The well-structured palate is broad and warm, full of red fruits, spices and a long finish with liquorice notes.

A wine with great ageing potential – 10 years or more. And with time it will become a wonderful accompaniment to mature cheeses and highly flavoured meat or wild mushroom dishes.
