In the Book of Tobias, an ancient Hebrew text, Asmodeus is the Demon of Lust. Of all of the varietals of Italy, nero d'Avola is as lustful and pleasurable as it gets. Ruby colored wine with notes of cherries, plums, and blueberries. Well balanced on the palate with lots of red fruit and spice characters, soft tannins, and a long, elegant finish.
100% Nero d'Avola. Bottled by ICQRF IT/TP/2193. Poggio Anima is a collaboration between famed Brunello di Montalcino producer, Riccardo Campinoti of Le Ragnaie, and his importer from Vine Street, Ronnie Sanders. The idea is pretty simple: to source the best vineyards from existing relationships and produce a real wine that conveys a place and a grape. These wines are not bulk wines, nor leftover juice from a winery, but long term contracts that they have signed with reputable growers. It is said that when Cain killed Abel, Adam and Eve separated for 130 years. During this time, Adam was tempted by Naamah and Lillith, two demons of prostitution. Asmodeus is the offspring of the relationship between Naamah and Adam. Rich, peppery, and opulent, this wine has many of the same characteristics of syrah and is the most important grape of Sicily.
