Tasting Notes: Shows plum and flowers on the nose. Full-bodied, with lots of berries, toasty oak, coffee and chocolate. Long and flavorful. Drink now through 2011. Chiaramonte Nero d'Avola is the personification of Sicily's most important native grape variety- from its intense purple colour to its unmistakable character. Red fruits and spices in the bouquet, round and complete palate with a rich core with excellenet balance of tannins and acidity.
