Vintages Wine Panel: Despite being Sicily’s most widely planted grape, Nero D’Avola may have originated in Calabria on the mainland, which may explain why the grape is also known as Calabrese. Regardless, in Sicily it produces delicious wines. Disisa’s 2008 version presents a smoky nose, with ripe black cherry, hints of sage and vanilla and plum. The palate is dry, lush and medium-full bodied with a sweet core of raspberry. My note: Lip-smacking, juicy delicious with aromas of purple plum and berries. Full-bodied and smooth. Perfect for any casual get-together and for parties where you don’t want to blow your budget but you do want your guests to think you spent a lot more than this.

Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

This wine is a deep ruby color, with nice aromas of black cherry, blackberries, leather, vanilla, and faint spices. It is balanced and smooth on the palate, with fine tannins and decent acidity played against over ripeness. The flavors are consistent with the aromas on the nose - black cherry, dark and red berries, with a bit of stewed plum, and accents of leather, vanilla, white pepper, earth and oak. Finishes with good length, on a theme of dark fruit, oak, leather and spice.
