Lia – An Uncommon Rosé

Today we tell you more about Lia, our rosé made from Nero d’Avola grapes, belonging to the Wine Art line that we launched on the market just two months ago.

Like all the names of our wines in this line, Lia is inspired by the world of Sicilian literature. In this case, it takes inspiration from the story of the Malavoglia by Giovanni Verga.

Lia was a girl born into a large family, the youngest of five siblings. She stood out for her sensitive character, her extreme beauty, and some characteristics that did not align her with the other members of her family.

Lia, thanks to her personality, was seen as too different from the society of that time.

Why did we choose this name for our rosé?

Our third DOC Sicilia represents the blend of tradition and elegance and stands out for its strong personality. It is a different wine in terms of colour, flavour, and identity.

On the label, Lia appears with a cherry blossom in her long, straight hair and a green dress with mint leaves.

Our rosé, coming from Mazara del Vallo, presents a splendid light rose colour.

On the nose, it offers enveloping aromas of fresh fruits such as strawberries and mango, with delicate hints of mint and pink pepper. The flavours of black cherry, pomegranate, and fennel culminate in a pleasant final freshness.

To enjoy Lia at its best, serve it in medium-sized tulip glasses at 8°C temperature.

What’s a good pairing with our rosé?

Today we propose a dish that you can prepare for your summer evenings, whether for yourself or for friends—a perfect dish for sharing moments or simply an ideal dish when you come home after a long day.

An exotic, fresh, colorful, and original salad is the ideal partner for our rosé. A light dish, but rich in vitamins and minerals that should be served cold.

What you need is a base of lamb’s lettuce, cherry tomatoes, red onion, cucumbers, pistachios, mango and avocado.

Assemble the salad by separating the ingredients as a poké and add a flavorful sauce made with lime juice, oil, and a pinch of pink pepper.

Don’t forget to add mint leaves at the end to make the dish even fresher.

This gourmet summer salad meets the flavors of the wine in an exotic taste journey that takes you from Sicily to South America. The acidity of the mango and cherry tomatoes enhances the sweetness of the red fruits of the Nero D’Avola. The mint and pink pepper meet the tropical aromas of this rosé and will take you in a long aftertaste.
