  4. Regaleali Nero d'Avola Sicilia DOC

One of the first Nero d’Avolas introduced to the American market, Regaleali Nero d’Avola is now a well-established example of this varietal from Sicily. Cultivated in the heart of the island, this wine expresses itself in old-world style and elegance. After fermentation in stainless steel, the wine is aged in a combination of 50% stainless steel and 50% Slavonian oak barrels.

Tasting Notes

Bright ruby-red color, this wine offers layered notes of cherry, mulberry and raspberry. On the palate, it is complex and supple, with ripe berry flavors framed by silky tannins. A delicious Sicilian red at a great value!

Food Pairing

The right choice for eggplant parmigiana, pasta with meat sauce, meatballs, sausages, pizza and roasted meats.
