Tenuta Rapitalà White Blend Sicilia IGT Casalj 2008
Tenuta Rapitala, Nero D’Avola, Campo Reale, 2008, Sicilia Price - $10 per bottle (I think) This is a full body wine with lots of fruit taste. We had this with pasta and red sauce. Tannins were evident on the back pallet. After dinner with some cheese and cracker the tannins were not as apparent. We recap and will finish the bottle tomorrow.
top#1 for as long as 3 years already almost impossible to find locally
External Reviews for Tenuta Rapitalà White Blend Sicilia IGT Casalj
The 2006 Nero drsquo;Avola Campo Reale is a fresh, vinous wine bursting with perfumed, sweet red fruit and a silky-textured, open personality. I would be hard pressed to name another wine that offers this much pleasure for the money. Anticipated maturity: 2008ndash;2009.
Therersquo;s a minty, pine --forest-like coolness at the core of this dense, chewy red. For all the concentration, it feels lifted and delicate, with lasting flavors of fresh blackberries and relaxed tannins. Serve it with spicy grilled sausage. Best Buy.
A crisp, medium-bodied red, with bright raspberry aromas and flavors and a clean finish.

The 2007 Nero drsquo;Avola Campo Reale is a pretty, entry-level wine with attractive aromas and a generous core of sweet red fruit. This is a good choice for drinking over the next year or two.
