This opaque and midnight purple colored Italian Nero d’Avola opens with a blackberry bouquet with hints of rum cake and boysenberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and fruit forward. The flavor profile opens with blackberry notes of rum and black plum. I also detected hints of old oak and faint prune lingering in the background. The finish is rather dry and its moderate tannins show excellent length. This wine is built for a cool evening. I would serve it with a ribeye steak. Enjoy – Ken
