    Nero Ossidiana
    Tenuta Castellaro, Nero Ossidiana, (Corinto Nero/Nero d’AvolaRed Blend), Lipari, Sicily, 2017 – $37.99 – 10% off for January 2023 Wine of the Month!

    “This wine has a strong and decisive character, lit by the sunsets of Lipari like the fire of volcanoes. The first, great classic red wine of Aeolian Islands with an enveloping and decisive structure.

    Nero Ossidiana is a red wine that testifies to our desire to enhance the indigenous vineyards and the great organoleptic properties of the terroir of the Aeolian Islands, which perfectly balances the beautiful acidity and elegance of the Corinto Nero with the soft warmth of Nero d’Avola.

    The colour of the wine is deep ruby red, it is complex and structured and presents itself to the palate with juicy shades of red fruit, intriguing aromas of spices and musk on the nose. Expresses notes of cherry and spices that blend with the intriguing salty side of black Corinth for an enveloping olfactory complexity Nero Ossidiana expresses all the typicality of a land that is both volcanic and marine, representing the union between the island and the sea.” ~ Tenuta Castellaro Winery Notes.
