Wine Tasting Note: Cusumano Benuara, 2003, Sicily, Italy.
Oddbins £8.49.
The Cousumano brothers, Diego and Alberto, have developed a high reputation with their recently founded winery. The Gambero Rosso Italian wine guide describes their wines as 'the real gems of the new Sicilian wine scene'. A blend of 70% Nero d'Avola and 30% Syrah this is a hefty wine, rich and full-bodied. Good on the palate with an initial richness cascading down into a spicy tannic driven whole. It needs equally hearty food - meatballs in tomato sauce is recommended on the Oddbins website but roast beef would also be excellent.
Scribblings Rating - 90/100
