Il Padrino Nero D’Avola 2012

Il Padrino F
Grapes from Sicily but bottled in Piedmont.

Akin to eating an Irish Cheese which is ‘made’ and packed in England by Tesco from Irish Dairy produce. Perhaps.

Fruity. Dry.

The O’Briens guff stated this was like a Shiraz but I’m afraid I wasn’t hugely impressed – a rather poor single sided version of a Nero D’Avola.

Perhaps I didn’t chambre it properly or maybe it needed decanting into a Carafe.

€9.99 O’Briens

Cantine di Priocca in Piedmont owned by MGN Mondo del Vino – who claim to be the 15th biggest Italian wine exporter
