Urla Sarapcilik, Nero D'Avola-Urla Karasi, Turkey, 2014
Drinking Window: 2016 - 2020
A Platinum winner at the 2016 Decanter World Wine Awards, this is a super red that is well worth the premium price. Farmed biodynamically on 3,000-year old vineyard terraces, it is comprised mainly of the Sicilian Nero d'Avola with 10% of the Urla Karasi grape that the company rescued from extinction. Powerful, dense, pure and herbal. The sweet red fruit combines so well with the grippy tannins.
