2015 Cusumano Nero D'Avola Italy
Lasagna night so naturally I opened this 2015 Cusumano Nero D'Avola sample which prices out at a $12.99 bargain. Huge fan of Italian wine and how inexpensive yet flavorful they are. If I ever traveled to Italy I may never come back. Reminds me why I need to drink more Italian juice.
On the the nose intense red and dark berry clusters with a not so subtle black pepper spice rounding out with hints of wild violets.
The mouth shows succulent pressed jammy red and dark fruit which leads to a juicy long finish.The black pepper spice is not at all overpowering and the tannins soften the longer the wine sits in the glass. Really enjoyable and pairs perfect with lasagna by the way.
