excellent value quaffable red
Southern Italy is often a source of good value wines that have distinctive flavours and styles, for very good prices. This Nero D'Avola from Sicily is a lovely easy drinking wine made in quite a light style, with soft cherry and plum fruit, and a touch of almond, good balancing acidity, soft tannins, and a smooth, rounded finish. A really good summer red, ideal for a barbecue, or perhaps a midweek family dinner al fresco. I had a glass with a simple tuna and tomato pasta dish, and it went very nicely.
