Occhipinti Siccagno Nero d’Avaola Sicilia 2010

A deep ruby color is the vehicle for a nose of tart cherry, cloves, nutmeg, tangerine zest and tar. These distinctly translate from the nose to the palate wh the tart fruit and tangy citrus notes carry across the mid-palate and fad into roses. The calm tannins suggest a wine entering maturity. Loads of sediment. 13% alc. With red pepper sauce over penne pasta and bacon. 03.21.18. Recommended.
