Colab and Bloom Nero d’Avola 2020

Special Price $22.00 Regular Price $27.50
This is a medium-bodied yet fruit intense, Single Vineyard Nero from the Fleurieu Peninsula. We found crunchy red fruits, black cherries, musk, and plenty of spices. Gorgeous by itself or with something Italian, like a fig and prosciutto pizza.
