wine of the week

2012 Vigneti Zabù Il Passo, Nerello Mascalese Nero d’Avola, Sicily, Italy


Recently tasted blind, it is no surprise that these two charming Sicilian indigenous grapes (Nerello Mascalese and Nero d’Avola) charmed me .  A savory combination of earthy and fruity notes dominate the palate. Expect red cherries, mushroom, sous-bois (forest floor) and blackberries with bright acidity and soft but firm tannins. Full of character and a crowd pleaser, it is the ideal wine to bring on a picnic while enjoying the remaining warm days. Serve with simple charcuterie, cheese and a baguette or for a more serious commitment, beef ragù or grilled sausages are a great match. Cheers! – MB


$22.99 (SKU # 699835) Available at BC Liquor Stores.
