2016 Arianna Occhipinti Nero d’Avola (750ml)

Nero d’Avola from Sicily, Italy

91WA

Spotlighting Sicily's most important red grape, the 2016 Nero d'Avola Siccagno offers a beautiful balsam note that transcends all that dark fruit at the core. I came back to this bottle a few hours after I had opened it, and my positive impressions were strongly reinforced. That pretty balsamic character is in line with young Nero d'Avola. Perhaps in less-refined expressions of the grape it comes off clumsily and unbalanced. Instead, this wine has harnessed the most elegant side of the grape with rosemary essence and caper flower.
