Tart red fruit aromatics of cherry, red plum, and raspberry are complemented with distinct aromas of fresh-ground pepper, cinnamon, and cardamom. There's great balance between fruit and spice, along with an appealing earthiness that adds complexity.
Medium-bodied and fresh on the palate, with dusty, earth tannins supporting flavours of ripe red fruit including plum, cherry, and pomegranate. The finish lingers with hints of dry earth, stony minerality, and dried herbs and baking spices.
This medium-bodied, dry red is the ideal accompaniment to pork chops with plum mostarda, classic cheeseburgers, or homemade meatloaf served with a sundried tomato compote (A.K.A. fancy ketchup!).
Fresh B.C. cherries out of the back of a truck, all eaten before you can get them home!
Tangy or sweet, juicy or tart: more sophisticated than a strawberry, but just as lush.
Sweet, fruity and sensual, similar stone fruit aromas to a peach, but without the 'fuzziness.'
A whiff of a freshly used pepper grinder - spicy and fresh, without the itchy nose.
The scent of freshly baked cinnamon rolls, straight out of the oven - ooey gooey goodness!
2022 - 2027
Sicily, once written off as one of Italy's many regions producing quirky and interesting (though not necessarily world-class quality) wines, is in the middle of a renaissance. Led by the stunning wines of Etna, made from grapes grown in the volcanic soils of the mountain's slopes, Sicily as a whole is now achieving long-deserved respect and recognition.
Cantine Europa is one of the island's longest-tenured and most important cooperatives. Their Roceno label highlights their best vineyards, and given the fact that Nero d'Avola is the island's most important red, it's no surprise that this wine is the standard bearer for the label. Medium-bodied and fruit driven, this is the perfect red to enjoy in the waning days of summer and the start of fall. Serve at about 18 C and enjoy over the next 3-5 years.
