Villa Pozzi Nero d'Avola is a red wine from the southern region of 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.

Villa Pozzi is part of the Duetshe Family Wine & Spirits portfolio and is widely distributed to restaurants and retailers in the United States. Winemaker Daniele Pozzi is part of the fifth generation of Pozzi family wine producers. All grapes are grown in Sicily and are hand harvested.

The 2017 Villa Pozzi Nero d’Avola is ruby red when poured in the glass. It’s a smooth wine with aromas of dark berries. On the palate there are tastes of earthiness, fig and pepper. It has a smooth, dry and acidic finish which is very pleasant and easy to drink. 

Food Pairing:

This wine can be enjoyed alone or with appetizers; or foods such as margarita pizza, grilled meats, and hearty pasta dishes.
