Ajello Furat 2005 Wine Review (NW)
wild berries, black licorice, and chocolate on the nose
smooth finish of dark berries, cocoa, vanilla, and oak
A number of wines from Sicily are decidedly modern, including this one. This is a full-bodied red blend of Nero D'Avola, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, and Merlot with plenty of oak treatment.
If you're looking for a rustic Nero D'Avola, don't open this wine. However, if you're looking for big fruit and plush texture, this wine is well made and decently priced at $17 or so. Raise a glass!
