Cusumano Nero d'Avola Sicilia 2010 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:

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!
