Nero d'Avola, a grape that many see as destined to produce cherry and plum fruited, cocoa powdery, simple mass market wines, can in fact make more complex, interesting stuff. Gulfi makes such a nero d'avola: fruity to be sure, but with the intensity, purity and added lift from bright acidity that will make you want to pour another glass and buy another bottle.

The Gulfi "Nerojbleo" Sicilia IGT is wonderfully fresh, with baked cherry and chocolate covered strawberries on a medium bodied frame with fresh acidity. Hints of sweet tobacco, tar and Brunello like spice make it a beguilingly complex wine for just twenty of your hard earned dollars.

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
