Dievole Fourplay Rosso 2007
Plump, with black cherry jam and hints of chocolate and mineral. Medium-bodied, with a soft, round palate, turning a little firm on the finish. Frappato Nero, Nerello Cappuccio, Nerello Mascalese and Nero d'Avola. Winemaker Notes - Made from four grapes native to Sicily, this wine is full of delicious ripe strawberry character, with a hint of licorice. Best with hearty Italian food...and friends!
The red wine's provocative name refers simply to the blending of equal parts of four native grapes of Sicily: Frappato Nero 25%, Nerello Cappuccio 25%, Nerello Mascalese 25%, and Nero D'Avola 25%. It is a dark ruby red in color, full-bodied, rich and powerful. This fruit-forward red offers aromas and flavors of blackberries, black cherries, spice and smoke. The palate is lush with soft tannins and beautiful balance. Delivering on the promise of its name, Fourplay provides superb length and richness on the finish. -Wine Spectator
