Deep ruby color; red fruits, some spice on the nose; black cherry, black plum, redcurrant, licorice on the palate.
Full body, rustic, reserved tannin, some acidity, some blackcurrant bite on the finish. Benefits with exposure to air/decanting. Blend of 55% nero d’avola and 45% syrah; made in Sicily.
This is fairly obscure, Sicilian winemaker. No website. No winery photos or owner backstories found online. Nice, big body, stand-up-to-grilled-red-meats pour. I can give you website of the American importer, which is worth visiting and has some details about this interesting, good-value wine. $10-13
