On the evening of Canada Day, we decided to have our two good friends, the CakeBitch & El Capitan, over for some homemade pizza and an impromptu wine tasting. This was the first time they’ve ever “tasted blind” by having two glasses of the same variety side-by-side to compare and contrast.
He says: The usage of a glass stopper as the enclosure is pretty nifty, and makes sense since I’d probably have to drink it over a week. I rarely am so underwhelmed.
She says: The better of the two Nero d’Avola’s we tried but that is not saying much.
He says: This wine is so disappointing for $20, especially considering all the other great values out of Italy at the same price. Stick with a Valpolicella, or an Aglianico, or a six-pack of Peroni.
She says: After hearing great things recently about Sicilian wine this was nothing short of a big disappointment!
