Nero d’ Avola Riserva 2013 Caruso e MininiFrom: $44.99
The 2013 Sicilia Nero d’Avola Riserva Cutaja is a broad and opulent red wine that opens to a concentrated and blackish color. Following two years of oak aging, including 18 months in tonneaux made with both French and American oak, this wine pushes Nero d’Avola to the extreme. The wine oozes forth heavy aromas of tar, Teriyaki, jammy fruit, blackberry preserves and rum cake. It offers firm lines and thick layers of chewy consistency. This is the proverbial “big boy.” 90/100 R. Parker
COS Cerasuolo di Vittoria Classico 2014 DOCGFrom: $49.99
This is a tremendous wine and is my favorite bottle in this excellent series. The 2014 Cerasuolo di Vittoria Classico reveals beautiful integrity and elegance with wild raspberry, blue flower and raw pistachio nut that is a bit sweet and salty at the same time. Buoyant and bright berry fruit takes center stage and although there are some post-fermentation aromas that might stick out to some experts, I embrace them as an integral part of this unique wine’s distinctive personality. The bouquet is almost electric. It has many elements that recall a young Nebbiolo with powdered licorice, cola and dried ginger. I tasted this wine from vat and tasted it again as a finished product. The label has been restyled to boast one of the most distinctive and contemporary designs I have even seen in Italian wine.
