As the rubies embellish the cloak of the Norman sovereign Ruggero II, so the grapes of Nero d’Avola decorate our vineyards. The name of the wine reveals the tribute to the cloak of Ruggero II King of Sicily, this garment was erroneously known as Coronation cloak, it was made in Tiraz (the weaving factory) of the Royal Palace of Palermo in 1134. This is a handiwork of rare magnificence, semicircular and over three meters in aperture diameter. The decoration consists of precious stones like rubies; immediate is the comparison between rubies and the berries of Nero d’Avola grapes and between vineyards and the cloak itself. The symbols in the labels recall the fabulous embroidery of the cloak of Ruggero. It goes very well with red meat, it is the ideal pairing with a tuna steak. Excellent with cheeses, especially hard cheeses.
