From the Winery:

"Grafted to our Omensetter Vineyard in 2009, this sixth vintage of the drought tolerant Sicilian varietal Nero d’Avola was picked at 13 Baume in 2016 to maintain vibrancy. The transparency of the Nero d’Avola grape was preserved by using gentle, ancient techniques and naturally occurring wild yeasts. Same as the first five vintages, the grapes were destemmed then fermented and aged on skins for six months in locally made 200L bees-wax lined clay amphoras. We also used some whole bunch in the ferments, about 20%, to see how they’d effect the wine. A bit more tightly wound this year, and a cool savoury note, as always with great promise for decades to come."
