There are strong aromas of ripe purple plum and dark cherry, with tastes of black licorice (which gives it a slightly medicinal taste), cherries and ripe strawberries. The tastes become more complex and smoother as the wine opens.

Wine Review - Villa Pozzi Nero d'Avola 2017

Villa Pozzi Nero d'Avola is a red wine from Sicily, Italy. We have been enjoying Nero d’Avola wines for some time now because they're so drinkable, approachable and food friendly. It’s a nice alternative to a Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, or Merlot and has a lighter mouthfeel. Besides, it's a delicious, underrated wine for less than $10.
