Lazurro Nero D’Avola 2007

Lazurro Nero D’Avola 2007
Sicily, Italy

The nose of this Italian red smells of fig with clove. It tastes like eucalyptus leaves, fig, raisin, cranberry, and clove. Overall, it’s too tangy but an okay drinking wine. I’m still trying to figure out why it was recommended to me when I said I liked Spanish wines, but that confusion is not the wine’s fault at all.

The Immature Palette

This wine makes me think of what I had expected Beaujolais to taste like.  It is soft and gentle, with lots of fresh fruity flavor to it . . .If you want a nice off dry to dry wine with a light structure, few tannins, and a light and delicious taste, I highly recommend this one.

    I know nothing about wine. I don’t drink so I can’t really comment. What did you have to eat with it?

    I don’t believe I ate anything with this one–sometimes I drink wine with food, sometimes I don’t. I know some wine drinkers are aghast at the thought of drinking wine without food! One of my friends sure was when I admitted I do. ,) I’ve never been someone that drinks much with food, so for me, eating and drinking are often separate pleasures throughout an evening. If I was guessing at pairings for this wine, though, I’d offer up lamb, bread pudding, or perhaps rich, tomato casseroles.
