Saturday night and I have for the first time opened a Nero d'Avola, the 2013 Gulfi Nerojbleo from Sicily.

The nose reveals notes of black cherry, black plum, dried herbs, licorice, tobacco, dried floral notes, oak and clay dust.

On the palate I am getting good fruit, black cherry, blueberry, black plum, licorice, leather, dried herbs, and dry soil.

You will find this wine to be full bodied with medium + acidity and high grippy mouth coating tannins that lead to a long fruit filled finish. I'm enjoying my weekend hoping you are too. Please be careful out there and be safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Stewed fruit, over extracted, porty finish. I don’t know if this is the style (Sicilian) or I got a dud bottle, not for me in any case. 14€/$21

2010 seems a little bit overworked. A bit unbalanced, maybe needing some more time before opening. Has potential.

Enjoyable Nero d'Avola, a bit unbalanced towards alcohol but not in an unpleasant way. Tons of sour cherries aromas

Yes please. Despite the label, this is bomb titties. Beautiful raspberry red color. On the nose, strawberry (wild) with notes of blackberry liquor and fig. One hell of a wine all around

It didn't piss me off. Simple, a little over extracted but hedonistic in a generally pleasing way.

Incredibly pleasing wine, all the virtues of a great Italian red wine with more delineated fruit and completely ripe and integrated tannin. The acidity is on point. The color is deep and dark, but the wine tastes and feels like silk, unreal quality for $20. #sicily #NerodiAvola
