2011 Feudo Di Santa Tresa Avulsi Nero D'avola


As I've been drinking a fair bit of Australian Nero D'avola lately, I wanted to refresh my memory on how it's done in Sicily.  Didn't hurt that I was looking for a sixth wine to get that great discount associated with buying in multiples of six.

Right away I got tobacco and blackcurrant/cassis, a very savory nose.  The palate was nice, if short lived.  Nice soft round tannins and more savory notes. This developed over a couple of glasses and provided some interest for me, but certainly didn't blow me away.  I wouldn't buy this by the bottle again at this price point, but would be happy to have another go on a wine list if I were eating the right food.
