Herersquo;s a toasty and earthy wine that is given more dimension thanks to lush notes of vanilla, blackberry, leather and pipe tobacco. The finish rides over spicy notes and the tannins are tight and dusty.
Deep red with a garnet rim. Roasted plum, brown spices, coffee and dark chocolate on the nose, plus a whiff of cabernet-derived bell pepper. Juicy and intense, exhibiting a strong minerality and a lightness of touch to its pretty cassis, black pepper and inky flavors. Finishes smooth and very long.
This estate is located in the hills between the communes of Salemi and Trapani. Mr. Melia, the proprietor, owns many hectares of which 22 are cultivated to vine on limestone and clay soils. Density of planting of 4,600 vines per hectare and production of about 45 to 50 hectoliters per hectare. The climate is mild in winter with dry and windy conditions during spring and summer. Harvest is done by hand, usually at the end of September.
Lots of ripe damson plum, oak, and earthy, slightly ferrous minerals on the nose and palate. Full-bodied, with firm tannins and lots of flavor. Long finish. Shows promise. Nero drsquo;Avola, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot. Best after 2007.
Ripe, almost raisiny red fruit aromas with notes of smoke and underbrush. Shows lush fruit in the mouth, along with a pleasing saltiness. Finishes with chewy, rather noble tannins and rather crisp, persistent flavors. This cabernet/merlot blend can hold its own with all the better-known examples from Sicily.
This ripe, sun-drenched blend of Nero dandrsquo;Avola, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon delivers generous tones of leather, tobacco, licorice, cassis berry, dried hay and spice. It has thick, dark concentration and a long finish.
This wonderful Italian red is a blend of Nero drsquo;Avola, Cabernet and Merlot. The Nero drsquo;Avola gives this medium-bodied wine its strength, while finesse and structure come from the Merlot and Cabernet. Big, layered flavors of blackberry and plum bring a smoothness to the delicious notes of spice box. Great for roasted red meat or your favorite hearty mushroom dish.
A dark red wine with deep blueberry fruit and the typical Nero d’Avola savory undertones. Smoke green herbs and chocolate... yum. This wine has considerable structure and will need some years to hit its peak but the owner will be well rewarded.
