Don Neli and Sud Est

nero d'avola and inzolia

data sheet

Symbol of the indissoluble bond between the Sicilian land and local farming, our wines are the product of the best Sicilian vines and grapes. Processed in old vineries and stored in oak barrels, they preserve the authenticity and flavor of the centenary winemaking tradition. Served and sipped at the right temperature, perfect as aperitifs, suitable for exalting red or white meat dishes, ideal to accompany light fish or grilled vegetables appetizers, IN Wines match harmoniously with any meal, delighting your palates with lingering pleasant sensations.

For graphical insight, the Nero d’Avola IN adopts for its label a painting made by the artist Francesco Lucifora, who interprets and gives life to the character of “Don Neli”, farm founder, surrounded by his vineyards, while the Inzolia IN adopts for its label a painting made by the artist Carmelo Modica, who gives us a glimpse of the typical rural landscape of the Sicilian southeast. All this shows the combination of art with wine, holding a material nature and a spiritual power at the same time: the MAGIC.
