"Savory spice, like cumin seed and fennel, plus dried plum and berry flavors give this nero d'Avola-merlot blend a beguiling exotic feel. Earthy, almost chewy, it tasted Mediterranean in its rugged charm, a combination of strong, iron-like tannins and sunny, plushly ripe fruit. Drink it now with spic-rubbed leg of lamb, or wait a few years for even more detail to emerge from its dark flavors."
-Wines & Spirits
Red wine made from Sicilian Nero d'Avola grapes which are used with a small quantity of Merlot, overripened in the hot Sicilian sun. After a period of fermentation, it develops in wood that rounds out its noble tannins while preserving the original fragrance and the primary bouquet. A "supple" wine, rich and balanced, that has a long life.
