Corvo Red Blend Sicilia IGT Rosso 2008
External Reviews for Corvo Red Blend Sicilia IGT Rosso
Medium-bodied, with damson plum and crushed black cherry notes leading to spice and cedar on the finish. Nero drsquo;Avola. Drink now.
Has an herbal bouquet with cherry and tomato notes. Some sweet plum with accents of baking spices comes next. It starts better than it finishes; along the way a chewy, textured, coffee-laden character emerges.
Everyone recognizes the Corvo brand but few of us are familiar with the three indigenous grapes that make up this popular Sicilian blend: Nero drsquo;Avola, Nerello Mascalese and Pignatello. Together they offer cherry, blueberry, pomegranate and plum with a touch of minerality and soft tannins.
This Nero drsquo;Avola is simple, light and smooth, with aromatics of red fruits and leather. Plum and berry flavors are solid if unspectacular, while the finish offers integrated oak and vanilla. A correct, good-feel red for easygoing occasions.
