Wild peppery herbs and flowers waft up from the 2018 Nero d'Avola. This impresses with a soothing display of ripe black fruits, enlivened by vibrant acidity. Purple-tinged inner florals form toward the close. Salty mineral tones, blackberries and hints of sour citrus linger long as this tapers off with a bitter twang. The 2018 is harmonious and very easy to like. It may not be a wine for the cellar, but it will certainly win a lot of hearts right out of the gate.

Varietal: Nero D'avola

Sicily is one of the world's most ideal grape growing regions, as it benefits from all the beauty and heat of a Mediterranean climate, and has mineral rich volcanic soils perfect for viticulture. One of the key varietals grown in Sicily is the Nero d'Avola, an indigenous grape which has become a highly important fruit for the Italian wine culture. In recent years, it has had plenty of success in various New World countries, as it thrives in hot and arid conditions and produces big, juicy, fruit-forward wines with plenty of pepper and spice notes. In Sicily, the Nero d'Avola grape is often used in the production of fortified wines such as Marsala, but it is most well loved in the still wines made from it, as they tend to be packed full of excellent flavors ideal for pairing with a range of foods.

Region: Sicily

The island of Sicily is one of those wine regions which seems to be designed for the production of quality wines. Not only does it have extremely fertile soils, helped by volcanic activity of such peaks as Etna, but the climate is absolutely ideal for the ripening of beautiful grape varietals, with almost year-round sunshine and cooling sea breezes. Sicily has been using such factors for growing grapevines for thousands of years, and is a truly ancient wine region steeped in tradition. Wineries on the island make a wide variety of wines, which are much loved for their ability to express plenty of exciting fruit flavors and sunny, tempting aromas, but Sicily is most well known for the dessert and fortified wines based around the port town of Marsala.

Country: Italy

Italy is recognised as being one of the finest wine producing countries in the world, and it isn't difficult to see why. With a vast amount of land across the country used primarily for vineyard cultivation and wine production, each region of Italy manages to produce a wide range of excellent quality wines, each representative of the region it is produced in. Any lover of Italian wines will be able to tell you of the variety the country produces, from the deliciously astringent and alpine-fresh wines of the northern borders, to the deliciously jammy and fruit-forward wines of the south and the Italian islands. Regions such as Barolo are frequently compared with Bordeaux and Burgundy in France, as their oak aged red wines have all the complexity and earthy, spicy excellence of some of the finest wines in the world, and the sparkling wines of Asti and elsewhere in Italy can easily challenge and often exceed the high standards put forward by Champagne. Thanks to excellent terrain and climatic conditions, Italy has long since proven itself a major player in the world of wines, and long may this dedication to quality and excellence continue.
