2006 Epicuro Nero d'Avola

This is tasty in simple way. Berries and spice. Fruity, but somewhat un-focused and a little flabby. Still, for 5$, pretty good. B-

I've had this 2006 Epicuro Nero d' Avola from Trader Joe's as well. Quite enjoyable. Have you had any of the other Epicuro offerings. All are worth a try....

I inavertantly left the bottle open for ~2 1/2 days after first sampling it. The wine transformed well with the additional exposure to oxygen - the brash fruit and tannins mellowed out nicely. I'm considering buying a case. Perhaps the best wine value I've found - if you don't have high expectations.
