Overview

Plumbago is a single-variety Nero d’Avola, called after the beautifully coloured purple wild flower that grows in the woods surrounding the baglio and vineyards of Ulmo. It is produced from the old vineyard around Lake Arancio which provides this soft and fruity version of a great Sicilian grape variety. Rounded tannins and perfectly measured maturation in wood give a wine of instant pleasure. Ideal for Mediterranean cuisine based on vegetables and particularly with meat of all types.
