IL MERIDIONE NERO D’AVOLA 2018
The Sicilian city of Avola offers many wonderlusters looking for a sweet combination of history. Coastal charm and numerous food festivals and local traditions. The area names one of Sicily’s most important red grape, Nero d’Avola, simply meaning Black from Avola.
A deeply coloured, medium-bodied, spicy red with aromas of ripe plum and black cherry. The palate combines warm, juicy red fruit flavours with savoury, lightly smoky characters. Some mild oaking comes through leading into some medium tannins with good acidity.A hint of bitter chocolate and nip of tannin on the finish.
If you enjoy Malbec or Shiraz, IL Meridione Nero d’Avola is the next to pour this summer. Bold and robust but generous in the berry department, it is a passionate Italian, for lovers of vigorous, youthful vino rosso.
