Sicilia Nero d'Avola 2021

Delectable Wine
9.0

The 2021 Nero d'Avola punches well above its price point with a burst of lavender, violet and blackberry on the nose. This is soft textured yet juicy to the core, with depths of sweet cherry offset by vibrant acidity. The 2021 finishes classically dry with a subtle tug of dusty tannins. $15.00 (Eric Guido, Vinous, January 2023) — 14 days ago

Pithos Rosso Vittoria Nero d'Avola Frappato 2018

Blood orange, pomegranate, some raspberry. Earthy. Fun to see notes (and places) when had prior vintages - still ‘bracing acidity’ and ‘Sicilian bojo’. With leftovers. — 21 days ago

Munjebel Terre Siciliane Bianco 2020

Very divisive at the table. I heard everything from a bouquet of white flowers to hot dog water on the nose. Personally a highlight of the night. Bright but round. Mineral as one would expect from cornelissen. Intellectual. — 17 days ago

Etna Rosso Nerello Mascalese Blend 2020

Made from one of my favorite Sicilian wineries, the 2020 Terre Nere Etna Rosso is a splendid reference for the Nerello Mascalese variety. Medium-ruby colored, the nose displays fragrant aromas of wild strawberry, crushed violets, freshly cut herbs and a dash of rose pedals. The medium-bodied palate delivers concentrated, ripe red fruit, polished tannins and lively acidity, all perfectly balanced. Drink now until 2030. — 13 days ago

Calderara Sottana Etna Rosso Nerello Cappuccio Nerello Mascalese 2020

Made from 50 to 100 year old vines and matured for 18 months in small and large oak vessels, of which 20% are new. Medium-ruby, the 2020 Terre Nerre Calderara Sottana is introduced by a hauntingly fragrant scent of red and black cherries, wild blackberries, Mediterranean herbs and crushed granite rock. The medium to full-bodied palate is marked by a firm tannic structure, nervy tension and wonderful fruit complexity, closing with an elegant, persistent finish. Drink now until 2040. — 13 days ago

A relaxed casual wine. Light in color but a ton of flavor. Just as good on day 2. — 5 days ago
