Winemaker's Notes

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.

Critical Acclaim

"Readers will find a more elegant, refined expression of Nero d'Avola in Regaleali’s 2005 Nero d’Avola Lamuri. This silky-textured red reveals an almost Pinot-like expression of red fruits, flowers, spices and toasted oak. Here the fruit is especially perfumed, while the finessed tannins frame the fruit with uncommon grace. It is a terrific effort that demonstrates the level of excellence Nero d'Avola can reach with attentive work in the vineyard. The wine also benefits from a relatively high-altitude site. The cool evenings provide balance to the hot daytime temperatures resulting in a wine of notable elegance. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2012. "

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.

Learn About Sicily

(SIH-sih-lee) Sicily makes a lot o' wine. From Marsala, the sweet, fortified wine of the region, to up-and-coming Nero d'Avola, this hot and hilly region is diverse. Sicily was at one time more quantity focused than quality, and while it's still producing a great deal of wine, the quality coming out is much better. With poor soil (great for grapes), warm sunshine, little...
