  4. Lamùri Nero d'Avola Sicilia DOC

Lamùri, or “love” in Sicilian dialect, is made entirely from hand-harvested Nero d'Avola grapes. The Tasca family credits the elegance of the final wine to the unique sandy soil and microclimate of this region. After fermentation, the wine is aged in French barriques for one year to add extra finesse.

Tasting Notes

Intense ruby-red in color, Lamùri offers lush aromas of black cherry, black fruits, vanilla, tobacco, and wild herbs.  On the palate, velvety tannins and refreshing acidity make for an elegant, expressive, crowd-pleasing wine.

Food Pairing

Pair this wine with spaghetti and meatballs, Bolognese sauces, pappa pomodoro, and lamb kebabs.
