Wine Find

2013 Resonata Nero d'Avola

June 20, 2014

From: Terre Siciliane, Italy

Price: $10

Serve with: Tuna steaks, light pasta, pizza

This smooth, young red wine from Sicily is a fantastic value, and a case purchase would be a wise move. It has a body comparable to a fine Beaujolais, but a spicy, more earthy Italian character to it. There's plenty of black cherry fruit and enough backbone to keep it drinking well into next year. (I wouldn't cellar it for an extended period.) This is a classy wine that would be great to sip outdoors while grilling.
