Tasca d'Almerita "Lamùri" Nero d'Avola: a Review

Wine is as good as life to a man, if it be drunk moderately: what life is then to a man that is without wine? for it was made to make men glad.
    —Ecclesiasticus, ch. 38, v. 1

(Our sample bottle was purchased by us at standard retail.)

About Tasca d'Almerita "Lamùri" Nero d'Avola

Tasca d'Almerita "Lamùri" Nero D'Avola is vinified in stainless steel then given 12 months in French oak, mostly (80%) aged barrels so as not to overpower the wine. The alcohol content was a nice 13% (we are among those who find the modern trend to high-alcohol reds sheerly, it seems, for "Parker power" to be deplorable). This "Lamùri" is Tasca d'Almerita's mid-range Nero.

The wine is very widely available throughout the U.S. It retails for anywhere from $13 on up to $24, the usual 2:1 or so span; the average price is $18.

Tasca d'Almerita "Lamùri" Nero d'Avola: Tasting Impressions

Tasca d'Almerita "Lamùri" Nero D'Avola displays, to begin with, a strong red-fruit nose, which is validated by its taste: dark cherry with a strawberry overlay. The acidity nicely balances the fruit, giving the whole a "bright" or even "brilliant" quality. But what is lacking is the characteristic Nero "charcoal dust" quality. Nor does the Lamùri have the fuller body typical of a Nero, being light to medium in weight.

It is, mind, a good and pleasing wine, and we recommend it; but it is more like a racy Zinfandel than a Nero D'Avola, so if you are looking for the full slate of characteristics that a Nero typically displays, this—though quite enjoyable in the abstract— is not the ticket. But it is nice.
