WTN: 2001 Firriato “Chiaramonte”

Recommended Posts

2001 Firriato “Chiaramonte” Nero d’Avola Sicilia - A dark purple in color. Nose shows some ripe dark fruit, blackberry, rose petals, and a little bit of a smoky quality. The smokiness is present on the palate as well, with some flavors of dark dried fruit and cherry. Clean and fresh, with a decent amount of acidity. A flavorful finish, with good length. The texture is quite smooth, with very fine and soft tannins. A simple, straightforward, $15 wine that was nice with some pasta, sausage, and red sauce.

All the best,
