Il Passo Nerello Mascalese e Nero d'Avola Vigneti Zabu 2012

Sicily, ItalyYou can smell the heat in this wine along with the spice and raisiny undertones. The grape were picked after a warm summer and further dried naturally to reduce about thirty percent of their pick weight. After a pressing and a long maceration it's aged in barrique for six months. Expect a black colour, a sweet black cherry fruit attack with very soft almost silky tannins. Rich sweet rustic southern Italian best served with spicy, meaty pasta dishes.Tasted: 26 November 2014Tasted by: Prices: BC 23.00 specialty listing Producer: Tenimenti Zabu SRLDistributors: Authentic Wine and Spirits Merchants
