Tenuta Rapitala Nero D'Avola Campo Reale

Nero d'Avola is probably Sicily's most important grape and it can certainly deliver the goods when it comes to value. Case in point: this awesome example from Tenuta Rapitala gives forth beautiful aromas of cherry jam, coffee, and a subtle stoniness. In the mouth it is fairly large-scaled and fruity with good acidity and nary a hint of the raisiny over-ripeness that can taint a hot climate wine like this. It really has great balance and will go great with your pizza, your pasta, and almost anything your gonna dish out on a Tuesday night. Imported by one of my favorites Frederick Wildman, it retails at my local joint for a mere $9.99. Great juice!
