Fondo Antico I Versi Rosso 2014 Product #30999 (In Stock)
Fondo Antico I Versi Rosso 2014 Fondo Antico I Versi Rosso 2014

A fantastic value Sicilian red that delivers big fruit and spice flavors without any over-ripe or dried-fruits notes at all.  A blend of tank-raised Nero d'Avola, Merlot and 20% Syrah, it's loaded with juicy blackberry and black cherry fruit.  A dash of white pepper and spice adds interest and the fine tannins make it equally delicious with or without food.  Give it a chill and slurp it down with pizza, pasta, burgers, or anything you'd like to eat!

Firriato Chiaramonte Nero D'avola Terre Siciliane 2013 Product #30409 (In Stock)
Firriato Chiaramonte Nero D'avola Terre Siciliane 2013 Firriato Chiaramonte Nero D'avola Terre Siciliane 2013

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.

Gulfi Rossojbleo Nero d'Avola 2015 Product #31203 (In Stock)

One of the most encouraging developments in Sicilian wine is how much fresher and more drinkably delicious Nero d'Avola is getting.  Here's a great example from the southeastern mountains, where cool nights lock in acidity to balance Nero's bold black fruit.  Dark plum, blackberry, and black cherry fruit hold center stage with a bit of cranberry on entry and roasted strawberry on the back.  The lightly chewy finish makes you long for a nice bite of lamb!

Tenuta Rapitala Nero d'Avola Sicilia Alto 2013 Product #31216 (In Stock)
Tenuta Rapitala Nero d'Avola Sicilia Alto 2013 Tenuta Rapitala Nero d'Avola Sicilia Alto 2013

From a vineyard perched at 1,500 feet, this is Nero ripened perfectly under Sicily's generous sunshine but kept fresh by cool nights and breezes.  Pillowy in texture with generous spice, baked strawberry and black cherry flavors that really pop on the firm, fresh, finish.  This is really fun to drink.

"Tenuta Rapitalà's 2013 Sicilia Nero d'Avola Alto is a darkly concentrated red wine with a pretty bouquet of dark fruit, plum, spice, tobacco and toasted spice. This is a bold and brooding Sicilian wine with evident oak notes that add extra softness and aromatic intensity. There is a slightly gritty quality to the tannins but otherwise the wine offers bold lines and juicy dark fruit flavors. It is extra succulent, rich and well suited for near term drinking."Wine Advocate 89 points
