Lamùri, or "love" in Sicilian dialect, is Tasca d'Almerita's most luscious, fruit-forward, and youthful Nero d'Avola. Made from 100% Nero d'Avola from 10-15 year old vines grown in sandy soils. The unique micro-climate provides Lamùri its pleasant freshness and elegance.
Intense ruby-red in color, Lamùri offers lush aromas of blackberry, mulberry and cherry. On the palate, this wine is incredibly rich, with velvety tannins and a refreshing acidity. Recommended with Mediterranean fare, such as pasta, roasted lamb and barbecued kebabs or ribs.
The 2008 Nero d'Avola Lamuri is one of the finest wines I tasted this year under $25. It is also a bottling that has improved dramatically over the last few years as Tasca has really dialed into an approach that has begun to payoff big time. The Lamuri showcases some of the more elegant qualities Nero d'Avola is capable of expressing. There is a wonderful clarity to the suave, caressing red berries and flowers, while the tannins possess a level of silkiness that elevates this wine to another level. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2018.
