C.V.A Canicatti – Aquilae Nero D’Avola Red Wine 2008
COLOUR: deep and bright ruby red with strong violet hues
ON THE NOSE:
rich in wholesome and clean sensations, ranging from red plum to cherry, and from the herbs of the Mediterrean scrub to plain chocolate, interwoven by exceedingly pleasant nuances of black pepper, seaweed and eucalyptus
ON THE PALATE:
dominant notes, harmoniously founded on other components, of flavor abound, giving life to soft and pleasant depths, exuberant but well-balanced, of soft and lively tannins
an invigorating wine, perfectly cohesive, dynamic and modern, of singular refinement, caressing and charming, persistent and spirited
a suggestive combination is rich rigatoni pasta with stewed red tuna meat and mint, or a tasty oven-cooked fillet of baby black pork from the Nebrodi region of Sicily and pistachio nuts from Bronte. Similarly excellent is a rich goulash of wild boar and mature cheese from Ragusa.
Gordon’s comment: Bouquet scent Lilly Aroma, Garnet red w Lustre rim, Tannic balanced fruit acidity hints blackcurrant, cherries, mellow in palate.
