2013 Eloro Nero d'Avola “Sciavè” Riofavara - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

   $35.00

ADD

From a parcel of the estate’s oldest vines, the Sciavè is by all means a bigger, badder, and brawnier brother to the Spaccaforno. Everything is black: the color, the fruits its aromas suggest, the tarry concentration, its notes of licorice, and the spice elements that prickle the sides of the palate. For all its outright power, this beast of a wine boasts an acidity that keeps things refreshing, along with tannins of remarkable finesse. –Anthony Lynch
