Feudo Arancio Nero D'Avola 2003 Wine Review (NW)

Cherry and earthy nose
Plum and spice on the palate
Somewhat weak finish

I've grown to enjoy Nero D'Avola, the quintessential Sicilian red wine varietal. This one, though, is not quite as good as others I've had. Granted, it's incredibly inexpensive at $6 (which may have been a sale price). At this price, I don't expect a knockout wine and it's unfair to over-analyze it. The truth is that it ended up being a nice food wine with our hearty Tuscan fare. Raise a glass!
