Grown on the side of a volcano, on an island in the heart of the Mediterranean, this wine shows the finesse of elevation, the unique minerality of volcanic soil, and the heart of a culture that has roots extending back hundreds of years. The wine this week is red, deep, rich and as full of history as it is of flavor! Grown by a family who have been raising grapes in the same soil for close to three centuries, this unique varietal is grown almost no where else in the world. The wine is as unique as it is expressive, and a fantastic introduction to a wine growing region that is only going to become more and more important in the next few years as the world discovers what has been in front of them all along!Join Christi & Alex this week as they Drink Something Amazing! Tasca D'Almerita  Lamùri 2016Sicilia DOC, Sicily, Italy100% Nero D'Avola13.5% abv$18.99 average priceWinemaker NotesMade for a selection of Nero d’Avola grapes cultivated on the high hills.
