Kermit Lynch writes: When Massimo Padova took over his family’s winery in the early 1990s, he sought to realize the full potential of the land through organic farming and low-intervention winemaking. Riofavara became the first local producer to adopt this philosophy, fermenting exclusively with native yeasts and bottling unfiltered. This delicious entry-level Nero d’Avola is a testament to these methods: dark and smooth, the Padova family’s Spaccaforno is generous but not heavy, with suggestions of blackberry, licorice, and spice leading to a lively, chalky finish.
