Nero d'Avola Sicilia Villa Pozzi 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

An intense, inky red, the Nero d’Avola seductively reveals a gorgeous perfume of blackberry liqueur, white flowers, vanilla, and a hint of figs delivered in a leather basket. On the palate, this wine is opulent, full-bodied, and viscous, with a great intensity, superb purity, and a layered, seamless personality that would convince most tasters that this is New World personified. Food pairing This wine is the perfect accompaniment to hearty stews and roasted lamb and beef.

Native to Sicily, Nero d Avola, which translates to Black of Avola, produces wines with a dark, robust character. The mix of Sicily s arid, Mediterranean heat and its large diurnal swings is conducive to creating ripe wines with retained acidity.



An intense, inky red, the Nero d’Avola seductively reveals a gorgeous perfume of blackberry liqueur, white flowers, vanilla, and a hint of figs delivered in a leather basket. On the palate, this wine is opulent, full-bodied, and viscous, with a great intensity, superb purity, and a layered, seamless personality that would convince most tasters that this is New World personified.
