The wine itself is somewhat lighter in color than many heavier red wines, but it presents a lovely nose of blackberry, tart cherry, rich leather, dried spices and an interesting twang. The taste was surprising, I was expecting it to be rather tart based on the nose, but rather it was very smooth with tastes of sweet berries, plum and a bit of fig that transitioned into some candied apricots and dusty limestone midpalate. The tannins were somewhat mellow, lending to the round, supple finish that really capped off the fruit.

First week this wine hit the shelf 10 cases were sold. I find it to be well blended, smooth and balanced with nice fruit notes. Acidity and tannin to be level. I highly recommend to my customers over and over and they come back for more.

First had this at a high end Italian eatery in KC, MO and was very impressed since it was one of their cheaper bottles on the wine list. Nice touch of oak, smooth tannins with a long finish. Very pleasing with any Italian food. Found it on sale at a local store for only $8.99. Drinks like it cost 2X that. Bulk buy if you like Italian reds.

Rose pedal nose, hints of strawberries. Taste is full bodied, long finish, semi-sweet, notes of pear and melon. Rustic Sicilian table wine with a touch of gentility.

WineMaker's Notes:"Seductively reveals a perfume of black-berry, white flowers, vanilla and a hint of figs. Opulent and full bodied, with great intensity, superb purity, and a layered, seamless personality. The perfect companion for hearty stews and roasted lamb.

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.

A rich red grape, sometimes called Italy's Shiraz, Nero D'Avola is grown on the island of Sicily with great success. Villa Pozzi sources it's Nero D'Avola from vineyards in the hills on the western side of the island. Elevations of 1,000 to 1,300 feet and clay soils give these grapes the balance they need to mature fully without becoming overripe. The result is a full, succulent wine with rich fruit, spice and deep color. A tremendous value, enjoy this wine with all of your favorite Italian dishes.

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. This wine is the perfect accompaniment to hearty stews and roasted lamb and beef.
