This robust but ready-to-drink red is an inspired wine of the little-known but excellent Nero d'Avola grapes of Sicily and the classic pinot noir of France. The result is a fresh, forward, aromatic wine that still has plenty of body and complexity. It displays appealing notes of blueberry, wild berries, Asian spices and wood smoke. It's a wine you can't refuse.
