With time/air, both the nose and palate grow exponentially. Delightful and viscous.

Cerasuolo di Vittoria Nero d'Avola-Frappato Blend 2018

Great lift and freshness for a cerasuolo despite showing the Sicilian ripeness. Candied red and purple fruit, prune plum, and a distinct but pleasant hint of burnt caramel on the nose. Judicious sweetness on the finish. Fabulous qpr. — 11 days ago

@Josh Morgenthau If ever you get the chance go to the winery in central Sicily, have a tasting and dinner and stay overnight. Excellent accommodation. We did this about 5 years ago.

@Bob McDonald Wow, wouldn’t miss it for the world. We’ve been to Sicily once before but stayed around Etna... didn’t make it to central or west. Saving that for our next trip.

Great for the price. A little over mild with light body, but it goes well with a meal. — 9 days ago

Piggy Pop Pet Nat Nero d'Avola 2019

Dark pink color - almost red. Very light effervescence. Dry, and balanced. Not a ton of fruit flavor. Would be good to take to a group thing, but not a good everyday drinking wine — 4 days ago

Mille e Una Notte Contessa Entellina Nero d'Avola 2016

Delectable Wine
9.3

A captivating display of blackberry, plum, grilled herbs, cedar dust and balsamic spice wafts up from the 2016 Mille e una Notte. It’s silky in texture and polished in feel, offering ripe black fruits lifted by cooling minerality. This remains tightly wound up in its youthful state, as a fine coating of sweet tannin settles in to create a structured finale, with pretty purple-tinged florals and hints of licorice lingering long. The 2016 may be one of the most refined expressions of Mille e Una Notte that I’ve ever tasted, but it will need some time to show its best. This is composed primarily of Nero D'Avola, Petit Verdot and Syrah, which is expertly refined in new barriques for 14 months. (Eric Guido, Vinous, June 2021)

From the May wine share. Pretty red juice colour. Spices like paprika or a mild chili powder, and Maraschino cherries. Light and easy-drinking 😋 — 23 days ago
