he's from a wine importing family out of Montreal, Canada but his family is of Sicilian decent.  Now young Luca is making his own wine, his first vintage no less which drinks as if he's been doing this for many many more.  

20 year old vines grown in Calcareous, Clay, Limestone soil

notes from Luca: "Strawberry rhubarb pie, smooth tannin and nice acidity."

 Luca affectionately calls this cuvee "Pachino Nouveau”

If Nero d'avola was from Languedoc! - that's this wine.  Not so much big bombastic fruit bomb (as Nero can be),more refined, more rustic, earthy and savory. Excited to see the evolution of this producer!
