Wine of the Week – Cusumano Benuara 2014 €18.99 Now €16.99 by Suzi Redmond
Another super offering from this winery. This wine has a deep and beautiful nose with aromas of blackberries, cherries, and spice with a light undertone of damp earth. It has an intriguing nose that almost transports you to Sicliy.
The palate really offers a lot, a soft velvety body with a light grip from the tannin. This wine really opens up beautifully and delivers more than you would expect from decanting it. There are flavours of red bramble fruits, cherry, spice and wild blackberries add some earthy tones and you have one big but not weighty elegant wine.
This wine is a pure delight to drink. It can be enjoyed on its own or pair with a meaty pasta dish such as wild boar ragu and parpadelle.
