Intensely ruby red
in color with supple aromas of ripe black cherry and blackberry, followed by spicy
notes of charcoal, vanilla and black pepper. On the palate, bursting flavors of ripe fruit and exotic
spice are balanced by pleasant acidity and silky tannins. Delicious with roasted meats, eggplant
parmigiana, pasta, grilled pork chops and veal casseroles.
"Ripe, with layers of black plum, cassis, tobacco and mocha held on a bright frame, with fine tannins filling out the tarry finish. Drink now through 2012."
"Morgante's 2008 Nero d'Avola is a delicious entry-level wine bursting with dark fruit, spices and French oak. This is without question a powerful style of Nero d'Avola where the oak has added a measure of textural richness and complexity. In another few months the wine should be even more integrated. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2014."
