Sipavola Rosso di Sicilia IGT

This medium-bodied red wine from Sicily is made from 65% Nero d'Avola and 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, and that makes for a hearty blend with good acidity and even tannins.

Dark red colors to start followed by aromas of dark fruits, blackberries, cherries, spices and dried flowers. Next are flavors of black cherry, blackberry, saddle and spice, with a bit of oak. A good food wine that's balanced and fruit forward.
