From the bottle:
"Produced from 100% Nero d'Avola, Sicily's most renowned indigenous grape variety, this wine offers the perfect expression of Sicily, just as nature intended it. Using only natural methods for fertilization and pest control, we have extended our total commitment to the environment by using all eco-friendly products for our packaging, recycled paper and pure vegetable ink for the label, 85% recycled glass for the bottle and recycled cardboard for the cartons. The wine continues the unique style of the Sicilian terrain with the red berry fruit, layered structure and soft tannins of the grapes. Unadulterated pleasure while preserving and protecting the planet.
The 2011 Feudo di Santa Tresa Purato Nero d'Avola Terre Siciliane begins with aromas of sour cherry, a bit of smoked meat, earth and savory Italian herbs. In fact, it almost smells like a good pizza or marinara sauce, which is certainly what you should eat it with! Tasting the wine reveals it to be loaded with rich and juicy sour cherry and other red berry flavors, more savory herbs and even a hint of green olives. Soft tannins and a smooth texture lead into the long finish which also features a bit of black tea under the rich fruit.
