It feels good to be number one baby! And Tavernello is Italy’s number one wine brand. Here’s a few more numbers to have a mull over – 27 co-operative wineries, 12000 wine growers, over 32000 hectares of vineyards (that’s 85% of the total area of NZ’s wine production!) and a whopping 9% of Italy’s total wine production!

Those are the eye watering numbers the Caviro wine group can boast. They began in 1966 in the heart of Emilia-Romagna and today Tavernello is their flagship brand, with over 7 million Italian households regularly whipping the tops off amazing value Italian red and white wines.

This is the Tavernello Organic Syrah from Sicily and it’s actually 80% Syrah with 15% of Nero d’Avola – a grape native to this island off the Italian mainland.

Scoring 90/100 with Master of Wine Bob Campbell who said “A fragrant, supple red from Sicily with violet, plum, dark berry and pepper/spice flavours with an appealing core of subtle fruit sweetness that balances a backbone of ripe and slightly rustic tannins. Good value at this price ($19).”
