This is made from the Nero d'Avola grape in south-western Sicily. Ruby in color, clear and shimmering bright. The nose has cherries, black licorice and slight balsamic notes. Great texture. Firm tannins. On the palate, cherries and sour cherries. Some warmth on the finish. Long finish. This is mostly about red fruit but a bit bigger and brighter. It drinks well on its own and will go great with pasta or pizza. A nice value. Drink over the next four to six years.
