Saia, its name taken from the Arab word for the irrigation canals built centuries ago to collect rainwater, is made with 100 percent Nero d’Avola, an extraordinary grape capable of producing intense, full bodied wines. The alberello method of cultivation and the aging in French oak make it a wine that stands alone in its category.

“This is a dark, plump and exuberant expression of Sicily’s mighty Nero d’Avola grape with a long delivery of ripe fruit to keep your attention.”
Wine Advocate

“Full body, firm and silky tannins and a polished and caressing finish. Lovely length and texture. One of the best ever from here.”
