Lamùri, or "love" in Sicilian dialect, is Tasca d'Almerita's most luscious, fruit-forward, and youthful Nero d'Avola. Made from 100% Nero d'Avola, from 10-15 year old vines grown in sandy soils. The unique micro-climate provides Lamuri its pleasant freshness and elegance. Aged in 20% new and 80% second and third passage French barriques for 12 months for extra finesse, Lamúri is also refined in bottle for three months before release.
We had this wine with a pasta and pesto sauce. It stood up; more than that, it flourished. This will be good sipping or with most hearty foods. For the combination of taste and price, this is one of the best. I just ordered several more bottles.
