Feudo Arancio Nero D'Avola 2002 wine review by (PB)

This oft reviewed wine by me of varying vintages continues to be a value favorite. I find it on special routinely at a place in suburban Boston for $6--unbeatable. This is the last of the 2002.

It is rather dark in the glass with dark fruit of black cherry and hint of something else I can't pin down--needs to breathe.

Palate is fairly austere prior to breathing and a bit biting. After even 15 minutes of breathing, the wine is changing. Bready flavor with dried cherries and dark fruit that is more pronounced. Black cherry flavors in the mouth with a touch of licorice after an hour. For the price you just can't do better! Raise a glass of any vintage of this wine. They're all good!
