Nero d’Avola is one of my favourite grapes, and I snatch up bottles of it whenever I happen upon them. Ironically it was the delightful elephants on the label of the Liotro Nero d’Avola 2009 that caught my eye first, not the grape. Liotro is part of the Bacchanal Wine Imports family which was founded in 2002 to specialize in importing small, high quality wines from Italy. Their mission is to work with producers that concentrate on using indigenous grapes “that embody terrific character particular to their origin and regions”.
