TOP FIVE Sicilian Nero d’Avola

 

With the winter weather upon us the natural acidity, clean minerality and earthy fruit of this native grape makes it a perfectly robust partner for all of our festive feasts ...

 

Mille e Una Notte Contessa Entellina Doc 2006, Donnafugata

Stunning. Balsamic notes: woody, dried herbs with a dash of spice. Elegant and complex. Refined without being uptight. The finish is complete, fresh and clean. www.Libertywine.co.uk

 

Alire Igt 2009, Fatascia

(50% Syrah). Modern in its use of new oak, its use of Syrah and its forward, fruity approach. But it works. The nose is fresh with a clean acidity and very focused. Gorgeous palate of chocolate and a nice finish.

Aynat Sicilia Igt 2008, Viticultori Associati Soc. Coop

A lot of oak - very much in the modern style. But it has good acidity and superb extracts which can take it.

Lu Patri Nero d’Avola Sicilia Igt 2008, Baglio del Cristo di Campobello

Another of the international style… oak is very evident but well-done. The wine is round, fresh and appealing.

Alhambra Rosso Sicilia Igp 2009, Spadafora dei Principi di Spadafora

Unoaked. Nose is fruity and fresh, the acidity is crisp and perfect. A clean, edgy wine.
