Calea Nero d’Avola 2011

Vintage update: The 2011 vintage was crafted from a blend of grapes sourced from the southeastern coastal region and the hills of the western region of Sicily.

Dark red-violet in colour, after aerating aromas of candied raspberry and racy cayenne pepper swirled about in the glass. Tart cherry and red currant flavours were joined by hints of fresh anise and earthy minerals in the medium to full body. Spicy pink peppercorn and traces of raisin notes comprised the moderate finish. Straightforward and easy drinking, this is a great value and an excellent choice for the table.
