2011 Vigneti Zabu “Il Passo” Nerello Mascalese. Sicilia IGT. Italy. 13%
Made from the Nerello Mascalese grape that is indigenous to Sicily.
Big ripe wine. Lovely. Dark spicy cherries. Hints of Christmas cake, but without the overt sweetness.
Chocolates, raspberry straps and coconut in there as well. Good tannin structure. Perfect “glugger” in a fun way. Nice change from the many boring wines out there at this price point.
