Donnafugata Sedara 2010 – One Big Aroma

Another Satisfying Sicilian

Primarily Nero d’Avola along with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and a small percentage of other grapes from Siciliy, Italy.

SRP of $15 and available for as low as $12.

From the bottle:

“Our family has crafted wines in Sicily for 150 years. Sedara is an introduction to our passion and tradition.

13.5% Alcohol”

The 2010 Donnafugata Sedara begins with one big aroma when first opened! So much so that I could smell it easily just walking by the counter where the open bottle was sitting. The “bigness” dissipates with a bit of time in the glass but the aroma which features loads of sour cherry and other red berries, spice and floral notes is still quite nice. Tasting the wine reveals a smooth, pleasing texture, more juicy sour cherry and tart red berry fruit, soft tannins, good balance and a dry, long finish. A very enjoyable, easy to drink wine — in other words, another satisfying Sicilian!
