Nero d’Avola from Sicily, Italy.
Available for $13 exclusively at Club W. Sample submitted for review.
From the bottle:
“In Sicily, a wine-rich land where the locals have as many words for vino as the Eskimos do for snow, Nero d’Avola is bestowed as their most important grape. The black-skinned fruit makes a rich, perfumed and peppery red wine that’s deliciously easy to drink.
The 2013 Costa Pietra Nero d’Avola begins with an wonderful aroma of spicy red fruit and pepper along with a little tomato plant and some floral notes. The wine tastes really delicious with those distinctive Nero d’Avola flavors of juicy, tart red fruit and plums mixed with spicy peppery notes and a little earth. Add in a soft, easy to drink texture and good acidity and we’ve got a winner. It ends dry and peppery with more lingering tart fruit and earthy notes. Match it with spaghetti and meat sauce and you’ll be in heaven.
