Ottoventi's organic and vegan Nero d'Avola Iruka is made with late-harvest grapes to create a fruity and sturdy wine. Ancient Sicilian winemaking traditions dictated that the higher the sugar content, the better the wine. These traditions have been embraced in the production of this Nero d'Avola. Deep ruby red, medium-bodied with low tannins and good acidity. Its bouquet is a simple but elegant one of strawberry and cherry notes with gentle hints of spices. Ripe fruit flavours of cherries, raspberries and plums are followed by subtle peppery notes. Drink now to 2025.

Ottoventi harvests their grapes by hand late in the season. This late harvesting is known as vendemmia tardiva and ensures the natural sugar content of the grapes is at the optimum point. The grapes are then left to air dry to concentrate sugar levels and add another dimension of flavour to the final product. After fermentation, the wine is aged in oak barrels.

Ottoventi, Sicily

Ottoventi is a small vineyard located in the northwest of Sicily that has been in the same family for four generations. The 40 hectares of vineyards span across Erice and Valderice northeast of the town of Trapani. This location is beneficial to the grapes as the constant sea breeze in the vineyards keeps the vines dry and healthy without the need for chemical intervention.

Nero d’Avola

Nero d’Avola, also known as Calabrese, is a traditional Italian grape widely planted in Sicily with disputed origins. Although Sicily has the highest world production of Nero d’Avola, it is believed that the grape originated from the neighbouring region of Calabria. Until the late 1900s, Nero d’Avola was mainly used in blends, often outside Italy, to provide structure to lighter wines. At the turn of the century, Sicilian producers underwent a Nero d’Avola renaissance, restoring this grape to its rightful place on the world scene. Full-bodied with high tannins and moderate acidity, Nero d’Avola wines are typically rich with ripe black fruit and cherry flavours. Hints of leather, tobacco and spice are also found in this grape.
