WineScores' Review

Muscular, ripe, supple.
There is a stunning glass stopper in this bottle, sadly hidden beneath its capsule, but you can admire it when you open it. Made from Sicily's most important red grape Nero d'Avola, it has a smoky and muscular character with a confiture of sun-ripened black fruits, espresso, grilled meats and spice. Brooding is an apt descriptor overall; it is toasted and earthy, dense and ripe. Sweet black fruit and sarsaparilla lift the palate, it enters with an attractive suppleness and trails powdery skin tannins. Expect great structure and excellent acidity to add levity.
Pair: pastas in spicy tomato sauce, rich meaty dishes or succulent eggplant caponata.

WineDiva.ca was launched prior to WineScores, in February 2004. WineDiva is the alter ego of Daenna Van Mulligen. She wears a cork tiara and is proof that a girl can have her w(h)ine and drink it too! WineDiva.ca is a tongue-in-cheek approach to a very serious passion for all things wine. WineDiva’s goal is to make wine fun, subtly educational & deviously inspirational. Vintage reciting wine snobs need not apply. WineDiva is painting the wine world pink and drinking it all in, and her glass is always (at least) half-full.
