Wine of the Week for May 1, 2006

Bolla Rosso Di Sicilia 2003 - $10.95
Style: R2

You may have to work at ignoring the tall blue botte but inside is a delightful surprise. The deep garnet robe is showing beginnings of brick. The nose is rich and smokey, with aromas of dried fruits, leather and tobacco. Rather substantial on the palate -- juicy, with dried fruit flavours plus more of the leather. With firm acidity, solid tannins, a full body and very good length, it's quite stunning for the price. A good partner for roasts, hard cheeses or just about anything in a red wine sauce.

Sounds like something I could sink my teeth into. I may just grab this one today.

We had this last night with our dinner and we really liked it. Very good for $10.95. I will buy this one again.
