Deep ruby color with floral and cherry aromas. A firm and powerful structure, a distinct but not intrusive amount of tannin and a delicate acidity.

"Melted licorice and tar notes are layered with blackberry coulis and grilled herb flavors in this minerally red, which is light- to medium-bodied and fresh. Drink now through 2018."

"The 2014 Sicilia Nero d'Avola Campo Reale shows distinctive aromas of this Sicilian grape with garden greens, spice, dark fruit and crushed pistachio. There's also a note of fresh fennel, dill or green caper that I often find in Nero d'Avola. It reminds me of the lush vegetation common to Sicily in the springtime. The mouthfeel is raw and tight with sour cherry flavors that make your mouth pucker. "
