My Wine of the Month: Di Giovanna "Helios"

The best wine I've had in the last 30 days!

In October, after checking out more than 100 wines, my choice for November is a red Sicilian: 

“Helios” from Di Giovanna 

Di Giovanna – one of the oldest wine families in Sicily – is located in the province of Agrigento. 

If I have to describe the wine for what it is, I would say: “The quiet before the storm”. This blend of Nero d’Avola and Syrah opens slowly and quietly. It then releases incredible sensations – like a storm! 

Helios takes its name from the father, Aurelio, and represents the best expression of the vineyards of the winery. It has a ruby red color with notes of berries and black cherry. The tannins are very soft with an incredibly long persistence.

This wine also awarded by James Suckling with 91 points, deserves all the pride of the Sicilian lands!
