From the 2020 Vintage:
The NDV is just a sensory experience. Aromas of five spice duck mixes beautifully with dark plums - heaven! The palate is round and light, thats kind of the juxtaposition of a Nero D wine, the nose leads you to believe you are about to drink something intense and powerful but instead there is this rich but delicate and round explosion of flavour in the mouth showing mixed falvours of bramble, chocolate, amaro and orange peel. Tannins are there. Good dinking wine.
"Fermented spontaneously in 200L beeswax-lined clay amphorae, where this rich wine remained across an extended maceration period, 6 months in all. Dark, spiced cherry scents meld with bitters, bergamot, anise, clove, sassafras and cardamom. The tannins, a gristly bristle, corral the teeming fruit and confer a welcome savouriness. This is a serious nero d'Avola of impact, immaculate detail and a textural precision that unravels with each sip. Far from the pulpy, vapid expressions that too often define the domestic norm. Excellent wine, here. The mandala of moreish tannins, its opus."
