Description

Nero d’Avola is the typical red variety of Agrigento’s Terre Sicane, where brothers Gunther and Klaus Di Giovanna, make their version of rosé since 2004. More than 30 years ago the Di Giovanna family began making wine from their 56 hectares of high-altitude, estate vineyards planted between Sambuca di Sicilia and Contessa Entellina.
Nero d’Avola covers much of the family property, planted in areas particularly rich in mixed clay and volcanic tuff. Named after the historic Gerbino vineyard, it’s a fruit forward and inviting rosé wine. It’s hand-made from the vineyard to the cellar, with a profound respect for territory.
Gerbino Rosato carries a stylistic seal of Sicilian expressivenes and elegance.

Color Pale pink with violet reflections
Aroma Mineral scents with raspberry notes and hibiscus flower
