(2021) Made from 100% Nero d’Avola, aged 10 months in French oak barriques, this has a crowd-pleasing 7.8g/l of residual sugar, which is apparent in the sweet and soft fruity finish. Very dark in colour, it opens with cherry and violet, a hint of chocolate, and pulpy black berry fruit. In the mouth round and caressing because of that sweetness, substantial and fleshy, a little mocha from the oak and enough acidity to counteract the sweetness and modesty of the tannins. If you are not too snobbish about your wines, you'd have to like this charmer.
