Hailing from the southern Italian island of Sicily comes the delicious indigenous grape Nero d'Avola. Although it can be made into very structured, full bodied wines that age gracefully, it can be used to create young, light and fruit-forward wines like this one. Many compare the grape to Syrah or even Aussi Shiraz.
The Cusumano Nero d'Avola is perfect for the "not quite spring but DAMN I wish winter was over" weather. This wine is light with a lot of fruit and notes of black cherry and raspberry. Keep an eye open, because many bottlings of this wine come with a glass stopper, instead of the traditional cork or the less traditional screw cap. This is becoming more popular than plastic corks and is a cool novelty.
Great with simple Italian food such as pasta or pizza.
