Il Canto di Fondo Antico Nero D'Avola 2006 Sicilia IGT
Attended Vino 2010 (Italian Wine Week) here in NYC last week and had the chance to meet many new friends and experience new Italian wines.
This lively and engaging Nero D'Avola from Il Canto di Fondo Antico, Sicilia is vinified in Stainless steel and aged in French oak barriques for 14 months and six months in bottle.
Wafting with ripe cherries, then morphing into floral aromas, and violets, then a bit of prune, contrasting with exotic flavors of white pepper, green peppers, red licorice and even a bit of chocolate. Soft, complex with a long smooth finish.
