87pointsAbbazia Santa Anastasia 2006 Contempo Nero d'Avola (Sicilia)

The Mediterranean island of Sicily certainly does not lack sunshine and this well-priced Nero d'Avola (Sicily's most exported native grape variety) is redolent of a hot summer day: mature berry fruit, black cherry, bramble, cola, resin, licorice, tar and spice peel back in thick, sticky layers. It is a ripe, succulent wine with a soft, chewy consistency that offers a lot of flavor and little fuss. Serve it with lamb shank tagine with couscous and stewed prunes.
