Elios was born from the passion of two young Sicilian friends, they joined together to develop their families’ farms and to bring them to their full potential after finishing their university studies. Elios prides itself on making minimum intervention, low sulfite wines with native Sicilian, organic grapes grown between Alcamo, Camporeale and Monreale; areas all located in the north-west part of Sicily. The wine making focuses on respect for the varietal, and aims to deliver an easy drinking, approachable style.

This red wine is made with Nero d'Avola grapes, one Siciliy's most popular grapes, and aged for 8 months in chestnut barrels. Elios' Nero d'Avola is unique in style: it's a lighter and more aromatic version of the grape. On the nose, it smells of fresh red fruit with hints of almonds and cloves. On the palate, it has a great acidity and smooth and soft tannins.

 

Pair this Nero d'Avola with tomato-based dishes such as pizza and pasta.

About the Winery

Elios

“Elios” was born from the passion of these two young Sicilian friends. With a true love for their land, they joined together to develop their families’ farms and to bring them to their full potential after finishing their university studies. The farm and vineyards are located near Palermo in north west Sicily.  Along with olive groves and an apiary, they grow the native Sicilian grapes Grillo, Catarratto, Zibibbo and Nero d'Avola on their organic vineyards.
