2017 Tasca Conti d’Almerita Regaleali Nero d’Avola Sicilia

This is a delicious wine that tastes all the better because it’s such an amazing bargain. James Suckling rated the wine 92 points and had this to say: “Good freshness and focus for this obscure grape variety, more often used to produce rich, alcoholic reds. Dried plums, blueberries and Chinese spices are all in play. Medium to full body, round and ripe tannins and a fruit-driven finish. Drink now.” Wine Enthusiast – which bestowed a 90-point review on the wine – chimed in with “Fresh and savory, this elegant, crowd-pleasing red has aromas of red and black-skinned berry and culinary spice. Juicy and delicious, the lithe palate doles out succulent Morello cherry, crushed raspberry and star anise while polished tannins offer smooth support. It’s made to be drunk young, so enjoy soon.” And enjoy the price! As low as $9.95/bottle.
