The 30-year-old Camporeale vineyard lies in the rolling hills on the island of Sicily. This lovely nero d’avola is awash with plum, strong-brewed tea and ripe blackberry. Supple tannins, medium-boy and enough acidity to pair with roasted meats. Delicious.3.5 stars out of 5. Sweetness=1 out of 10 (dry to sweet). $13
