Zagara (Italy) Nero D'Avola/Sangiovese 1998
From Sicily comes this beautifully made inexpensive red, brimming with fruit yet savoury and food-friendly. The nose has cherries, vanilla and hints of aromatic violets. The palate is medium-bodied and again there's a lovely ripeness of cherry and raspberry fruit, with an overlay of sweet oak. Nuances of tobacco, spice and chocolate show up into the finish which is firm and juicy. Sainsbury 3.99 (11/99).
