Feudo Maccari Nero d'Avola IGT 2010

Nero d'Avola is one of the most important varietal grown on the beautiful Mediterranean island of Sicily. It may not be so popular here yet. For me, I got a chance to try this Feudo Maccari Nero d'Avola 2010 the other week at The Reflexions @ Hotel Plaza Athenee Bangkok. Personally, I do like to wine a lot. Really recommend it for everyday wine.

Grape Varieties: 100% Nero d'Avola
Alcohol: 14.0%
Origin: Sicily, Italy
Appellation: Indicazione Geografica Tipica (IGT)
Expect to Pay: THB500 – 700 (retail price in Thailand)
Chubby Score: 90/100

Professional Rating: n.a.

Appearance: ruby red
Aroma: red berries and burst of fruity sensation
Palate: good structure and balance with minimum noticeable acidity, moderate level of rounded tannins, rich character of sweet plum and spices dominant but not chewy, lingering with enjoyment in the mouth

Feudo Maccari Nero d'Avola 2010 is a very good value for money table wine that can be consumed delightfully now and perhaps 5 years more easily. If a touch of sweetness kind of wine is what you do not mind, then pack a lot of these in your cellar now.
