BLACK SOIL: these vineyards are located roughly 120 meters above sea level, where the soil is extremely dark, almost black in color. The soil has a medium density tending toward compact, with a fair proportion of small, dark stones. These vines are roughly 20 years old, and produce a Nero d’Avola wine called Il Moro, which is well-structured and marked by strong hints of small red fruits like blackberries, raspberries and black cherries, as well as dark chocolate tannins that are at once powerful and enjoyable.
