Wine Review: This bright red colored wine from Sicily opens with a musty oak and cherry bouquet with a hint of old leather. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and juicy. The flavor profile is a gentle strawberry with notes of light cherry and faint minerality. There is a bit of oak and touch of raspberry in the background. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins build up and stick around for a while. This wine is food friendly, but because of the tannins it needs a somewhat fatty meal. I would pair it with an Irish lamb stew with bacon. Enjoy – Ken
