Donnatà Nero d’Avola comes from the most significant Sicilian red grape, which fully expresses its territory through an admirable balance and a surprising pleasantness. On clay soils, rich in limestone and potassium, the vineyards of Nero d’Avola are laid down and vigorous, planted starting from 2000 with an espalier system with spurred cordon.
