Cusumano Noa 2003 Wine Review (NW)
Huge nose of cherry, ripe berries, and sweet spices
Medium-rich fruit on the palate
Long finish of cherry and earth
Wow! I didn't know Sicily could produce wine like this. I've had an aweful lot of Nero D'Avola, but nothing like this from the island. Most Sicilian wines have that "old world" elegance and charm. This is an entirely different story with a big bouquet of fruit and spice in a very modern style.
If you're looking for a big, modern style, you'll be very impressed with this wine. If you want refined and subtle- skip it- because there are plenty of others to choose from. Also, this one will cost you around $40.
Raise a glass!
