Dark, stanky earth, forest floor & black fruits, some of that typical tar-like quality. But on the palate...much better balance than most Nero at this price. Really lays heavy on the tongue with black fruits, spicy notes, oak influence. Good overall offering but this wine is not for everyone. If you're more into light reds or fruit-driven california cabs you may actually hate this...be warned

Woody, peppery nose. Medium-bodied on the front of the palate. Some berry fruit. Lots of acid pops up as the wine moves around the palate. No tannin to speak of. Pretty easy drinking wine. US$10.99 at Costco.

My Rating 84: This is not really a dry wine has still plenty of residual sugar. No complexity, hint of over ripeness. Nose fruity ,not complex. is more an everyday wine ( Jug wine) Overpriced ! Don't buy

The nose starts dark with a little buttered toast that slowly opens to reveal red brambly fruit, cocoa and a bit of undergrowth. The palate is almost sweet and velvety smooth with blue and black fruits, bitters and a vanilla sheen. The finish is long with red licorice candy. I found myself hating this bottle one moment and then loving it the next. With a year or two in bottle it might calm down but at the moment the acidity is untamed and the extraction intense

Balanced wine. You can feel the Nero D'Avola uniqueness... save for a fruity finish, which reminds me of American Merlot, unfinished... Overall, a good wine for the price.

Medium-bodied and spice-driven, with tangy red fruit flavors and hints of brambleberry on the finish. Great with barbecued chicken or grilled pork.

The 2012 Nero d’Avola shows Colosi’s comfort zone in terms of price and quality. The wine opens to plush and soft tones of chocolate covered cherry with plenty of fresh fruit and blackberry at the back. The wine shows a solid delivery with soft tannins and pleasant heft and weight to the finish. You can taste those distinctive Nero d’Avola characteristics of toasted almond nut or scorched earth. Drink 2014–2017.

Die Traubensorte Nero d’Avola wird «weiss» gekeltert, d.h. der Traubenmost wird während der Gärung nur rund 24 Stunden auf den Traubenhäuten gelassen, um die brillante Roséfarbe zu erhalten. Das Bukett des «Cariddi Rosato» ist weinig und erinnert an Frühlingsblumen, sein Geschmack trocken, frisch und jugendlich.

This opens with pretty fruit tones of cherry and blackberry, with subtle tones of spice and rum cake in the background.

The 2011 Nero d’Avola flows across the palate with generous fruit. Rich, open and expressive, the 2011 literally bursts from the glass. This hearty, mouthfulling red is undeniably attractive, even if the bouquet isn’t as precise as it ususally is. Anticipated maturity: 2013–2015.

Wine Tasting NotesNero d'Avola is the most important red wine grape in Sicily, and is one of Italy's most important indigenous varieties. Dark ruby red, with intense fruit aromas especially cherries. Dry, full-bodied, warm wine and youthful. Perfect with red meats cooked any style, pasta with tomato sauce and aged cheese.
