Vurria
Nero d’Avola
DOC Sicilia

Vurria is an elegant and harmonious expression of Nero d’Avola. Aging in tonneaux lends roundness and a velvety texture, a dark bouquet with sweet spices, where berries and plum stand out. The palate is silky, with waves of currant and black cherry.

Description

Di Giovanna’s Vurria Nero d’Avola is hand-made from organically cultivated vineyards in Contessa Entellina, Palermo. A Nero d’Avola fully representative of Sicily, and the Terre Sicane zone. It shows an excellent aromatic expression and a mix between enveloping softness and expressive flavor. Di Giovanna’s organic, estate vineyards are situated in the mountains between Sambuca di Sicilia and Contessa Entellina. From the birth of the winery in 2004, Di Giovanna has significantly reduced the yields per hectare, focusing on the quality of its estate made bottles.
For this reason and for their dedication to organic viticulture, Vurria retains a genuine character of a Nero d’Avola. From the first sip it shows balance and elegance, a truly unique profile that only a rigorous and quality cultivation can produce.

Color Intense ruby red
Aroma Hints of black cherry and wild berries, violet and pleasant spicy notes
Flavour Elegant and enveloping, with soft tannins and a savory and fresh finish.
