About The Wine
Everything about this wine stems from Guido and Nicola's belief that Nero d'Avola does not need to be seen as the heavy handed work horse of Sicilian reds. By picking their organic fruit early and following their natural winemaking philosophy they have captured a lighter, brighter, and decidedly more elegant expression of the variety.
You will still find classic blue fruits, rust, and dusty tannins but with a zippier acidity, more aromatic florals and a lighter body. Delightful, Naturally.
What do you get when you cross a computer programmer and an oenologist?
Well, in this case, you get Elios, a passion fuelled natural wine project from the stunningly beautiful hills of Alcamo, Sicily.
Guido (the wine one) and Nicola (the computer one) share a love of Natural wine, nature, and a desire to reclaim their families’ agricultural holdings and, to use their words, pull them 'from under the thumb of industrial groups'.
Their vineyards are farmed biodynamically and organically and their winemaking is Natural, they use no additives at any stage.
The wines are as vibrant, energetic, and passionate as the pair themselves and they make a super addition to our Sicilian line up. Fans of skin contact should look out for their stunning Orange number, Macerato.
