Fabrizio Vella Rosso Organico 2020
DOP Sicily, Italy
Producer: Fabrizio Vella
Fabrizio Vella is a passionate winemaker living and working in Sicily.
Proud of the island that he calls home he wanted to create a wine range that was personal to him, that reflected where he was from. Working with our Masters of Wine and indigenous varieties of Cattaratto and Nero d’Avola he conjured four wines using an organic approach and careful winemaking to create wines that are fresh, exciting, moreish and true to their origin. A Sicilian wine through and through.
A natural wine with a complex nose, which is spicy and packed full of punchy liquorice, chocolate, and dark fruits. Crisp, pleasant and persistent in the mouth.

'A very good value introduction to natural wine here from Sicily and made from the local Nero d’Avola grape variety which has a delicious brightness of energetic fruits. Medium ruby in colour, it opens with a riot of dark berry fruits – cherry, mulberry and just picked blackberries. That bright and fresh style then continues on the palate joined with a spicy, violet-infused lift and well supported by mouth-coating tannins. It’s surprisingly firm but it all sits nicely in a complete package. No doubt well suited to Spanish Tapas, you could also chill it down for sipping in the sun.'
