Review: 2017 Donnata Nero D’Avola Sicilia DOC

Alessandro di Camporeale is the producer of this budget bottling, which fights dramatically above its weight class.

A succulent and intense nero d’avola, this wine is initially a touch closed off but soon showcases a lively flavor profile, opening with blackberry and plum notes and moving into elements of licorice, plum, and black cherry. Lengthy on the tongue with a silky, enveloping body and a touch of graphite, this is a surprisingly complex wine that evokes the rich, unctuous essence of nero d’avola. Pick it up.
