Romolo Buccellato Nero D'Avola 2003 Wine Review (NW)

Light cherry nose
Silky, medium weight on the palate
Clean, simple finish with some herb and sour cherry

A Nero D'Avola can range from simple cherry flavor to rich and robust, similar to Sangiovese. This wine is on the simple end, but is also inexpensive at $8. I grabbed it because I want to sample any Nero D'Avola wines I find under $10. These Sicilian bottlings are good values and it's worth spending some time finding ones you enjoy. Raise a glass!

We picked this wine at an Italian Restaurant in Campbell last night. Bellagio. We paid $28 for the bottle but it was very good. It has an interesting and complex flavor.
