Corvo Red Wine 2004 IGT Sicily

This red wine from Sicily is made mainly from 70% Nero D'avola, 15% Perricone, and 15% Nerello Mascalese. The nose is a cherry but with a background aroma of horse manure. The flavors are also primarily cherry, but with a dusty, chalky, musky vinegar aftertaste. I'll have to pass on this one. I usually like Nero D'avolas so I was a little surprised by this one although it may be the blending grapes that don't appeal to me.
