More about this wine from Sicily
Nero d'Avola is one of our all-time fave, fave, fave grapes! It typically makes wine that is bold, big, and jammy without being over the top. One might argue this grape is a lusty and guilty pleasure, and, of all of the varietals of Italy, Nero d’Avola is as lustful and pleasurable as it gets. And many argue Italians evoke a life of romantic fantasy more than most. This vino is rich, peppery, and opulent.

The juice is dark garnet with notes of ripe plums, leather, garrigue, and pepper on the nose, with ripe black cherry and a touch of candied berry on the palate. Your sip finishes with fruit and a subtle licorice note with soft gripping tannins that bring the party completely together. Now back to your favorite Italian dream destination! Hope to see you on the beaches of Capri soon...

This jammy Italian red wine is perfect with classic Italian red sauce dishes. We're thinking baked lasagna with a classic bolognese.
