Nero D'Avola is one of the many awesome Italian wines that you may have never heard of but you should definitely try. Hailing from Sicily, these wines tend to be bargains, coming in around the $10 to $20 range. The Ajello Majus Nero D'Avola comes in at around $12. It is a pretty classic example of the wine, with sun-baked red berry fruit and a bit of lava rock-esque minerality. It is of course a great wine to pair with Italian foods, red sauces, pizza, etc. But, my friends and I drank it on its own while playing World of Warcraft and listening to 60's English Folk Music. (Yes, we are dorks, see previous post for a more in depth discussion.) Anyways, a good buy if you can find it, if not give another Nero D'Avola a try. It's a cool recession budget wine that deserves and audience.
