A purer wine would be difficult to find!
Insieme, meaning 'together' is the starting point for this lovely wine. Organic, and made with 'no sulphur added' (NSA), in collaboration and fairtrade partnership with Stellar winery in S.Africa. Soft and supple, with juicy damson and bramble fruits, the purity shines through here and it's at a great value price too. (total natural sulphur level at 20ppm).
'Dry cranberry fruit and a gentle liquorice character on the nose are quite subtle, but the palate bursts into life with lots of depth and smooth, sweet black fruit. It is all nicely edgy and alive, but then there's a smooth, chocolaty tannin character and the depth and concentration of blue/black fruit is delightful.' Tom Cannvan's Wine Pages - Top Wine Under a Tenner February 2013 (2011 vintage)
'Santa Tresa's terrific 2011 Insieme Nero d'Avola from Sicily is, for once, a "No added sulphur" natural wine that sings with bold, juicy, inky, yet sweet damson plum fruit.' Jane MacQuitty - The Times 16th June 2012
Located in Modica, one of Sicily's most ancient areas for wine production. Here, the 50 hectare estate lies close enough to the Mediterranean to benefit from it's cooling breezes, this coupled with its sandy loam topsoil sitting over a well drained limestone base creates a perfect healthy, organic grape growing environment. An indication of the estate's forward thinking was their willingness to work with Dudley Wilson (from Stellar vineyards in South Africa) on their 'no added sulphur' Nero D'Avola red wine project.
