Archeo Nero D'Avola Ruggero di Tasso Sicilia 2007 wine review by (PB)
Trader Joe's is always good some super wine values and this was another one I grabbed a half case of when in Boston. It has a garnet hue with some depth and bouquet of distinction with earthy fruit with touches of raspberry, cranberry, and pomegranate(?)
Palate--Tasty and juicy with black pepper on opening with loads of minerals and cherry fruit. With some air, a nice thick layer of milk chocolate raises into the air and an integrated palate of dried cherries, and bread with chocolate carrying through to the foundation.
This is a lot of wine for the $6 price tag which explains why I bought a half case and will buy more if I get down there in the near future. Raise a glass.
