Vintages Wine Panel: The 2002 vintage of this wine was on Wine Spectator’s Top 100 wine list in 2005. Since the 2003 vintage in Sicily was equally fine, expect this not-yet-reviewed vintage to be similarly spectacular. This Nero d’Avola is big and meaty with mineral and blackberry tones, exceptional balance, and good ageing potential (5+ years). My note: Rich and plumy with attractive notes of licorice and pepper.

Nero D’Avola food pairings: meat casserole.

This Spadina Nero D’Avola 2003 was reviewed on May 23, 2009 by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
