Wine AdvocateHere is another excellent value wine from Sicily. The 2016 Sicilia Nero d'Avola Lamùri Tenuta Regaleali (aged in barrique for 12 months) shows a lot of varietal authenticity with dried cherry aromas followed by black olive, caper and toasted pistachio nut. All those aromas take you straight to Sicily in heart and mind. This vintage takes a little longer to open and swing into action. Bottle production is large with 260,000 units made.
