Eloro Pachino Riserva is one of the finest examples of the Nero D'Avola currently available on the market. For a DOC riserva wine, this is a bargain price.
100% Nero d'Avola (known also by the name "Calabrese").
Flavors of black cherry, plum, vanilla, and rich earth highlight the understated elegance of this wine. Aged in barriques to add new levels of flavor and complexity which are realized in a full bodied, long lasting, velvety finish.
Dark Ruby red.
Its bouquet is intense and musky.
Once again, the riserva is a strong wine so more plain and traditional foods will sit together well with the wine.
