- Colosi Nero D' Avola Sicilia 2013 Product #28960 (In Stock)
As Wine Advocate says, "it is hard to argue with the quality Colosi puts into the bottle at these prices." This is a fresh, bright, style of Sicily's Nero d'Avola that will make a super sipper or party wine (and will shine with richer meats and pasta, too!). Bright aromas of red plum, blackberry, and fresh, savory, herb. Hearty and ripe, but still juicy and fresh, in the mouth with loads of sweet blackberry and boysenberry fruit and a touch of earthy tar. Mouthfilling deliciousness here that will explode with Lebanese or Moroccan food.
- Firriato Chiaramonte Nero d'Avola Terre Siciliane 2012 Product #28916 (In Stock)
Don't let the new label fool you - the new vintage of Chiramonte Nero d'Avola is as delicious as ever! This juicy, black-fruited, slightly modern take on Sicily’s Nero d’Avola grape has been one of our top selling Italian reds for years now.
The grape is Nero d’Avola, Sicily’s best-known red varietal and one that’s prone to making rustic, pruny, wines that lack a little freshness. Not here! Winemaker Giuseppe Pellegrino picks his fruit ripe but not over-ripe, gives it a cool fermentation and then ages a portion of the young wine for 6 months in mostly used barrels. The result is a lithe and fresh Nero d’Avola, full of dark black cherry and black plum fruit, hints of licorice root and spice, and a zingy squirt of citrusy acidity. It’s a fun wine to just sip on (takes a chill nicely), but really sings with backyard cookout food or pasta with roasted tomatoes. Very fine value.
