A rich red grape, sometimes called Italy's Shiraz, Nero D'Avola is grown on the island of Sicily with great success. Villa Pozzi sources it's Nero D'Avola from vineyards in the hills on the western side of the island. Elevations of 1,000 to 1,300 feet and clay soils give these grapes the balance they need to mature fully without becoming overripe. The result is a full, succulent wine with rich fruit, spice and deep color. A tremendous value, enjoy this wine with all of your favorite Italian dishes.

Q:I have ordered and drank this wine through the vintages from 2007-2011 and am curious as to why they have switched (ca 2010) from a corked bottle to a screw top bottle and if this in your opinion has effected the taste or quality of this wine.Asked on 11/10/2013 by jeffmartin83 from Omaha, NE
A:Thanks for your question. For a wine like this a screw top is absolutely the best way to go. Corks are subject to cork taint which ruins many bottles of wine. Screw tops are sanitary and convenient. The major argument against them is for wines that require long aging, it is believed that the microscopic amount of air that penetrates a cork over time is beneficial to the development of these wines. Since Villa Pozzi is a best enjoyed young nothing is lost by eliminating the cork except the romance and perhaps occasional difficulty that comes with removing it.Answered on 11/12/2013 by Josh from Wine Express
