2015 San Marzano Timineri Nero D'Avola IGP

Sicily

Our Price: $21.99 / bottle (RRP: $30.00 ) Case: 6 x 750ml

'The taste has initial sweetness, plum, strawberry and spice with a touch of perfume. Juicy and energy rich with light tannins, but always with beautiful fruit.'
Vinhulen (Wine Cave - European Wine Reviewer)

  • You want sun-kissed, fertile, lively Italian reds with character and a slippery ease of drinking? Then look no further than the 2015 Timineri Terre Siciliane IGP Nero d'Avola. It's full of cola, cherry, balsamic drenched black fruits, with an earthy, volcanic undertone and a beautifully refreshing acidity. There is no better definition than the smashable, slurpable, moreish wine than this one. Epic stuff, that has more in common with the Barossa, than it does with the drier more tannin heavy wines of Northern Italy.

    The best part? It's just $21.99 a bottle. What? Are these Italians making a mockery of us Australians? Packing that much flavour and utter drinkableness in to a bottle... only the Italians could ever be so full of cheek (You would think they've had centuries of practice or something).

    "Ruby red and dark, perfumed fragrance with strawberries and plum and great warmth and comfort. The taste has initial sweetness, plum, strawberry and spice with a touch of perfume. Juicy and energy rich with light tannins, but always with beautiful fruit. Ends with light tannins. Nice fast, full and juicy wine."
