Tantalize your taste buds with a little spice: chili peanuts, crispy pork belly, or massaman curry.
You’re experimenting in the kitchen after an afternoon spent poolside, where you initially cracked the bottle open. Bring it inside to carry on the good times.

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. New for 2022, we co-fermented our youngest dry-farmed Nero d’Avola vines at Bricarelli Ranch with the adjacent rows of Negroamaro and bottled with 9 g/L residual sugar. Technically this rosato is a “dry” wine with less than 1% remaining sugar, but that little touch of sweetness adds body and a stronger wild strawberry core to a perennial favorite cuvée.

90% Nero d'Avola, 10% Negroamaro
Nero d'Avola and Negroamaro from Bricarelli Ranch, Ukiah, Mendocino County; head-trained, dry-farmed (non-irrigated) vineyard, farmed by us according to organic principles (no pesticides, herbicides, or synthetic fertilizers); gravelly loam benchland soils, where Italian farming families first planted vineyards (reserving the rich valley floors for vegetables).
Whole clusters (stems intact) of Nero d’Avola and Negroamaro foot tread for an overnight maceration on skins before pressing the following day. Co-fermented and aged in neutral tanks and neutral oak barrique for 6 months. Unfined. Filtered for stability.
Cold // 40-50°F // 4-10°C // Open this wine straight out of the fridge.
