Epicuro Nero d'Avola

This I believe is the first true gem from the Trader Joe's cheap wine collection. Very smooth and well-balanced, a little mellow maybe, but spicy enough to keep me happy. This wine comes from Sicily, and there are more Epicuro varieties available. I have another bottle, an Aglianico, waiting on the shelf.

From the back label:
Made only from the Nero d'Avola grapes, this is a great wine with a beautiful rich bright garnet colour and full bouquet redolent of berries, cherries, and spices. The flavour is clear-cut, full-bodied, and elegant.

This wine will definitely be making a return appearance on my table.
