Elios was born of two young friends in Sicily who wanted to change career paths and coincidentally had family farms that needed some revitalization. With a love of natural wines, they wanted their project to reflect their core values that wine should be made with as little intervention as possible to allow the grapes to shine. This Rosso is made to show the more elegant, refined side of Nero d’Avola. Aging in chestnut barrels, a wood traditionally used for winemaking in Sicily, softens the intensity and helps preserve the natural aromatics of dried herbs, red plum, and blackberry preserves. The palate boasts dried cherry and cranberry with plenty of smoky earthiness that is undeniably Sicilian.

Pairing: Charcoal-grilled Denver steak & shishito peppers
