Tasca d'Almerita Lamùri Nero d'Avola 2017
Inviting aromas of Mediterranean scrub, ripe black-skinned fruit and culinary spice lead the nose. Smooth and savory, the juicy, accessible palate offers ripe blackberry, prune and a hint of licorice accompanied by polished tannins.
Fresh and finely knit, featuring supple tannins and bright acidity, with flavors of crushed black raspberry, rose hip, dried sage and stony mineral. Medium- to full-bodied, offering a lightly chewy, spiced finish. Drink now through 2024.
The 2017 Sicilia Nero d'Avola Lamùri Tenuta Regaleali shows extra ripeness and sunny concentration that come forth in the wine's soft, jammy aromas. The bouquet emits dried cherry confit and blackberry preserves. The vintage heat also plays up those varietal tones of scorched earth. I taste the vintage more than I taste the fruit. But there's no complaining at this low price point.
