Normanno Di Meno Nero d'Avola 2021 75cl


Tasting Note

Fresh cut flowers, just turned earth, moss, and a gentle spiciness on the nose leading to a dark chocolate-y palate, liquorice & blueberry with lovely suppleness courtesy of the 30% whole bunches in the fermentation. Goes down extremely easy, making it the perfect bottle to always have at home, and the perfect party wine!


Based in the subregion Alcamo in Western Sicily, wine has been made by the Vesco family for 100 years, along with tending to olive groves and wheat. The family revolutionised their farming and cellar practices in the 90s and are now combining traditional techniques with modern technology to result in great success. 

The name of the company is used to indicate less handling, less intervention and less filtering and SO2 as "meno" means "less" in Italian. However, with all of these "less" factors, it certainly does not apply to flavour! They are known to be leaders on the island in organic and sustainable viticulture, having nearly 100 hectares of vines.
