In a nutshell:
A soft and supple, fresh and unoaked Sicilian red.
Nero d'Avola is the flagship red grape variety of the Mediterranean island of Sicily and makes wines with a deep colour, good bofy and ripe, sweet fruit. This delicious example from Vigneti Zabu is an unoaked version made from young vines and was fermented and aged in stainless steel. It's a nicely well balanced wine with lots of fresh black fruits, violets, spice, and soft, supple tannins and has a nice weight to it which quite impressed us when we tasted it. A comfortingly warm feeling wine whose bright berry flavours and wildflower hints last long in the mouth.
When to drink:
It's ripe and juicy nature make it a great wine to go with things like chilli con carne.
