In Italy, making food and wine is so entirely natural it almost appears instinctive. As we undoubtedly agree, they belong together, which is why we’ve created PRODIGO; meaning lavish, sumptuous, luxurious or grand. Our wines celebrate the marriage of Italian food and wine allowing every night to be a PRODIGO night.
The grapes come from selected vineyards harvested later than usual, towards the beginning of October, to get a level of maturation such to have a high sugar level and good alcohol content. Grapes are naturally dried on vines for about 15 days. After the hand harvest, grapes are pressed and the fermentation starts; the skins are left in the must for a period to extract flavor in temperature controlled vats between 77-81°F. It is left in oak for 5-6 months.

It is evident that food and wine are harmoniously linked in Sicily, defining the region. It is known for its rich and full-bodied wines, as the Nero d’Avola is produced using an “appassite” method of naturally drying the grapes prior to harvest. Our Nero d’Avola appassite has a ruby-red color. The bouquet is slightly spicy and has notes of dried figs and ripe fruits of blackberry and boysenberry. The finish is round velvety with notes of vanilla.
