This is 60% Nero d'Avola and 40% Frappato from Sicily.  Purple in color with ruby hues, mostly clear and bright.  The nose has cherries, black cherries, smoke and slight mint note.  Medium bodied with medium tannins.  Good acidity.  The wine is interesting with cherries, black cherries with a dark, earthy loam note underneath.  Good finish.  This is drinking well but will mature a bit.  It will provide good drinking for the next eight to twelve years.  Although it is nice on its own, it will work better at the dinner table.  It will work well with game but also Busiate al pesto Trapanese for vegetarians.
