Trader Joe's had their Grand Opening today in Corvallis, Oregon. I decided to browse around the store with no particular purchase in mind. I came across some "wine tasting" and was pleasantly surprised to see and taste something unique.
Nero d' Avola is imported from Sicily. Archeo is the brand name and Ruggero Di Tasso is the winemaker. This wine is produced in Southwestern Sicily. It is very much reminiscent of a Chianti or Valpocella. We all had the same opinion, the wine was very good, in fact I would say it was excellent. I will definitely purchase another bottle.
This wine had a hint of berry and was semi-dry. It was perfect to accompany our beef tenderloins. The price was very reasonable at $5.
My rating is a definite "buy"!
