WTN: 2002 Abbazia Santa Anastasia Nero d’Avola

2002 Abbazia Santa Anastasia Nero d’Avola Sicilia - Very dark color, a sort of reddish-black. Nose is of dark dried fruit, smoke, earth, spice, and a little bit of dust. Flavors of red berry, balsamic vinegar, dark dried fruit, and some smoke and spice. The flavors are fairly bright. Medium-bodied, with a good acidity, and a nice clean finish. A not-too-fancy but very likable bargain wine that was really nice with a simple linguini with tomato sauce and bacon. A solid buy at $10.

All the best,

Jean

Yeah, Jean, I enjoyed this one last year (probably the same vintage, not sure), and it's a nicely quaffable Nd'A that hasn't been overmanipulated into a blowsy fruit bomb. The price is nice, dollar/euro imbalance be damned.
