What’s in the Box?
Our free-range lamb, fed on a pure grass diet and slowly grown to natural maturity has distinctive and characterful flavour.
Sicily’s warm, dry climate is ideal for organic cultivation and most vineyards already use very little spraying against diseases and pests. So the island is a great source of good, affordable organic wines. The Da Vero wines ('davvero' meaning ‘really’ or ‘naturally’ in Italian) are the result of a long relationship (over 10 years) with a cooperative in Sicily - who the producers have been working with since their Sicilian project began. They also happen to have the island's largest plantings of organic vines!
The Nero d'Avola grapes are sourced from the area around Salemi (Province of Trapani) in the north-west tip of Sicily. The vines are Guyot-trained, and grown at around 250m altitude on a combination of soil types. The vineyards were converted to organic viticulture in 2007.
Da Vero Biologico Red, IGT Terre Siciliane organic wine has ripe aromas of black fruit and a hint of spice. The palate is full with rich plum and bramble fruit characters, and plump tannins.
