Nero d'Avola: So Tasty, So Trendy

In today's New York Times, wine sage Eric Asimov highlights a Nero d'Avola blend in his article on value wines from Italy.  The trend continues!  I can't wait to try Cerasuolo di Vittoria, in which the frappato grape keeps my current crush company.  

Asimov recommends two producers in particular:  Pithos ($40 - this one gets filed under "Special Occasion") and Valle dell'Acate (a steal at $16).  Click here for more Nero picks from Natalie MacLean and here for a full profile of this Sicilian sipper, along with a few of my own personal faves.  Enjoy!
