Villa Pozzi 2012 Nero D'Avola
A rich red grape, sometimes called Italy's Shiraz, Nero D'Avola is grown on the island of Sicily with great success. Villa Pozzi sources it's Nero D'Avola from vineyards in the hills on the western side of the island. Elevations of 1,000 to 1,300 feet and clay soils give these grapes the balance they need to mature fully without becoming overripe. The result is a full, succulent wine with rich fruit, spice and deep color. A tremendous value, enjoy this wine with all of your favorite Italian dishes.

        Comments about Villa Pozzi 2012 Nero D'Avola:

        Year after year this is just one of the best Italian wine values out there. Clean and bright red fruit on the nose with hints of dried herbs and earth. Lively acidity and smooth tannins give it a vibrant mouthfeel, perfect for pizza and pasta.

              Had the Villa Pozzi Nero D'Avola at a local restaurant last week and thought it was delicious.
              Smooth, not alcholic, big fruit.
              The measure I use for a really enjoyable wine is when I can't keep my hand off the wine glass (keep taking a taste).
              This is that kind of wine.

                • Q:

                  hi. i have bought from you in the past and read all of your emails as to wines of the day. i am intrigued by this one because my wife and i are planning to tour Sicily next spring with friends and i know little about their wines. the only Sicilian wine we have had several times and liked is a Saia which i do not know if you carry. anyway, i am ready to buy a case of this and would also like to get another case of red and maybe two of white that are similarly great value wines and also possibly different and unique in some respects. they can be Sicilian, Italian, French or from wherever, but we have always bought a lot of California and lately Northwest U.S. wines, and we are trying to branch out. so any help you can give would be greatly appreciated.
                  thanks,
                  Chuck

                    Chuck, thanks for your question and interest in our wines. We do have a few other Sicilian wine including Saia. If you search "Sicilia" on our site they will come up.

                • Q:

                  I have ordered and drank this wine through the vintages from 2007-2011 and am curious as to why they have switched (ca 2010) from a corked bottle to a screw top bottle and if this in your opinion has effected the taste or quality of this wine.

                    A:

                    Thanks for your question. For a wine like this a screw top is absolutely the best way to go. Corks are subject to cork taint which ruins many bottles of wine. Screw tops are sanitary and convenient. The major argument against them is for wines that require long aging, it is believed that the microscopic amount of air that penetrates a cork over time is beneficial to the development of these wines. Since Villa Pozzi is a best enjoyed young nothing is lost by eliminating the cork except the romance and perhaps occasional difficulty that comes with removing it.
