    February 25, 2012 - Magnum drunk amongst 8 of us at Beppo. Very fruit forward for an Italian - and enjoyed by all. Killer QPR and still going strong.

    (MORGANTE Nero d'Avola) Nero Dear Friends, Here's another crazy bargain for a party or other setting where you require a bottle for 20 or more patrons. Not only is the wine full of intensity and lip-smacking spice and red fruit but the bottles look great as well (and they are priced at a level we rarely see with magnums). Not available in the US in this format, this set is directly from the winery cellar with perfect provenance. In 2006, the Nero d'Avola was not intended to be a bargain wine - the vintage was too good and they decided to up the ante with this bottling. It hails from some of the finest material they have at Morgante and (unlike the Don Antonio), they decided to tone down the oak in favor of varietal expression - the results speak for themselves. 2006 was a great vintage in Sicily and it wouldn't surprise me if this was one of the more popular items of the year (after all of you taste it). This price for a magnum of wine this good? In today's dollar/euro world, it's close to impossible as it costs more than double to ship a magnum from Europe than a 750ml: ONE SHIPMENT ONLY of magnums - there are no large formats available for the US outside of this parcel VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED as an outright steal of a deal and for rarity in this format: 2006 Morgante Nero d'Avola Sicilia 1.5lt (Sicily) Thank you, Jon Rimmerman Garagiste Seattle, WA Italy6430
