Pairs with pumpkin
Cusumano Nero d’Avola
A great buy from Sicily. For under $15 this Nero d’Avola has more licorice than others I’ve had and lots of dried fruit and raisin. All the rich dried fruit in this robust wine would be wonderful on a sunny fall day after raking the leaves or after a hay ride with the kids.
Serve this for a casual dinner party. This wine is full of fall flavors, so pair it with one of the many pumpkin recipes that surface every season. This will be a fun wine to introduce to some friends who are willing to try something out of the box.
