Nero d'Avola is a wine with velevety tannins and a pleasant lingering. It has a dark purple red colour and a fruity vein that reminds us of blackcurrant and bilberry. Delicious with grilled meat, roasted pork, mature cheeses and all types of cold pork cuts.

Wine Advocate

The 2010 Nero d'Avola is juicy and exuberant from start to finish. Cherry cola, sweet spices, French oak and flowers meld together in the glass. Varietal aromas and flavors take a bit of a back seat in this racy red. Sweet floral notes and a hint of Nero d'Avola character appears on the finish. Although excellent, my sense is that Morgante's Nero d'Avola could be a more interesting wine with a less heavy hand in the cellar. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2015.

Score: 88. —Antonio Galloni, February 2013.

Wine Enthusiast

Nero d'Avola sometimes delivers a toasted note of pistachio or almond, and that nutty note is definitely found in this wine. Soft and smooth in texture, the palate offers notes of black fruit and plum.

Score: 87. —Monica Larner, March 01, 2013.
