More about this wine from Sicily, Italy
This Sicilian wine is a blend mainly composed of Nero d’Avola, the island’s most important grape. Its extremely full body is on par with Cabernet Sauvignon and the grape is also known for having big, fruit-driven flavors. Up until recently, Nero d’Avola was seldom seen on labels and primarily played the role of blending grape - as is true in this bottle. This difference here, though, is that the grape is proudly highlighted right on the bottle!

The weight of this wine, though, is derived from the Merlot. A grape known for being a California superstar with a little junk in the trunk (Kim K, anyone?). Nero D'Avola just provides the earthy undertones: wet chewing tobacco, an old cedar chest and raisins. The two varietals work intermittently to create a well-rounded, big-boned wine.
