HASAR NERO D'AVOLA IGP 2012

TERRE DI SHEMIR, GUARRATO VILLAGE, TRAPANI, SICILY, ITALY

100% NERO D'AVOLA

Dark, ruby red with light violet reflections and good glycerine 'tears' on the glass. Aroma of violet with mature red fruits and presence of spice with a finish of fresh resin. Full-bodied with soft rounded tannins on first taste, followed by ripe plum, damson, apple and cooked quince fruits. The persistent finish – reminiscent to that of Barolo's woodiness – marries well with typical country-style cooking, pasta and pesto, as well as cheeses of medium maturity.
