Isola dei Profumi Nero D'Avola Perricone 2018 750ML



The Bottle: Nero D'Avola is the most popular grape to come out of Sicily by far. But Perricone (also known as Pignatello) is also a very common grape on the island, used in many of the local wines, including Marsala.

The Producer: Gianfranco Palladino runs this family-owned and operated winery along with his sister, wife, mother and father. They use the traditional winemaking techniques of their ancestors blended with modern equipment.

The Why:This blend of Nero D'Avola and the lesser known, Perricone, starts with a pretty nose of bright red fruit and roses. On the palate, the ripe, rich fruit continues, intermixed with earthy notes of tar and tobacco.
