Cusumano Nero d'Avola Sicilia 2010 Wine Review (NW)
Red currants and herbs on the nose
Medium bodied on the palate
Moderately tannic finish with wild berries and herbs
This is a good, simple, and somewhat rustic wine from one of the noteworthy producers on the island of Sicily. For $10, this is a "you get what you pay for" wine. It doesn't merit a lengthy review, but it's worth recommending as an introduction to the Nero d'Avola grape. Serve with hearty Italian fare or homemade pizza, and raise a glass!
