Villa Pozzi Nero D’Avola 2008, Sicily, Italy - $8/$32

Ordered a glass of this Italian Nero d'Avola at Taverna tonight. It retails there for $8/glass and $32/bottle. Online the prices average around $10/bottle.

Aroma - red fruit, light and pleasant
Taste - red fruit, clean, soft tannins

This wine paired well with Taverna's Cozze al Vino “Marittima” (mussels in white wine, garlic, and tomato broth) and Risotto ai Frutti di Mare (risotto with saffron and seafood), which were both unbelievably delicious. Like it, and will definitely buy it again! Will also get the mussels and risotto again, too!
