Notes: It appears med+ ruby with good legs. On the nose it's clean and perfumed in a feminine way with cherries, and ripe raspberry and boysenberry, some leather and dusty earthy and iodine notes. On the palate is dry, with med+ acidity, med+ tannins (very silky), med alcohol, med+ body. There is great delicacy yet firmness, an unusual kind of beauty for what you would expect from Nero d'Avola. I think if Les Amoureuses in Chambolle-Musigny was able to ripen Nero d'Avola, it would give a wine similar to this! Definitely you can feel the vineyard heritage here, and the work done in the cellar is minimal and remain behind the fruit expression on the stage.    
Very Good quality, Drink Now but will keep for several years, Premium Price, Nero d'Avola, IGT Sicilia, Italy.
