A floral nose and lovely balance of cherry with blackberry acidity. The nose reminds me of a Malbec but it has hints of Shiraz with a spicy finish. I noticed a definite , but surprising black licorice, along with chocolate-covered cherries, that assserts itself in the finish. This is simply delightful. I can’t imagine it can get better with decanting! This Feudo Arancio Nero D’Avola is delicious right out of the bottle.
Tom: This is a delicious soft red, dry but not tannic like a cabernet. This wine has absolutely no astringent or heavy alcohol taste; instead it’s very smooth. There’s a pleasantly strong fruit taste (but not fruit-bomby). This is an easy-going red wine that is tasty but not a “big red;” it would be great with cheese and fruit and would be an interesting wine for white-wine lovers to try.
