Enjoy With

Explore compelling textures like nopales, calamari, or zesty olives. Salads with tart raspberries, black cod + fried rice, and anything with a subtle smoke will do well with this wine without overpowering its concentrated fruitiness.

Drink When

You’re biking down to the corner store to spend your allowance on sweet summer treats, experimenting with new textures in the kitchen, and rinsing off your sandy feet at the end of a long beach day.

Martha's Notes

Vino di una notte... This translates to ‘one night wine’ and refers to the technique of crushing grapes and leaving them to macerate on skins (and in our case, stems) in their own juice overnight, adding color, texture, and complexity. I love using this technique with our Nero d’Avola because it produces a wine that falls between rosé and a red wine—zippy and bright like a rosé but textured and robust like a red wine. The farming at Bricarelli Ranch & Chiarito-Ling Vineyard also adds to the complexity of this wine. Dry farmed on well drained soils, grape berries are small due to water scarcity and have a higher skin to juice ratio (skins are where you get a ton of flavor). By blending together two vintages of Nero d’Avola rosato, we merge the freshness of 2021 with the elegance (from extended aging) of 2020.
