This is an excellent value buy. The 2014 Sicilia Nero d'Avola delivers a pure and clean expression of the grape that is free of any extra bells or whistles. The wine focuses on those characteristic aromas of bramble, wild berry, black olive, toasted pistachio nut and white fennel that you get with Nero d'Avola in its purest form. This grape underlines the wild side of this indigenous variety.

Subtle and balanced, offering light, sculpted tannins and layered notes of ripe currant, black licorice snap and herbes de Provence, with a hint of tar-tinged smoke on the finish. Drink now through 2020. 21,000 cases made.

This wine opens with mature black plum, blue flower and cooking spice aromas. The juicy, easy-drinking palate delivers ripe blackberry and blueberry jam flavors, with a hint of pink peppercorn. Velvety tannins provide smooth support. Enjoy through 2020.
