If you enjoy Italian red wines but want to try one that's a little bit bolder and richer than your typical Chianti or Montepulciano, then you really should give a bottle of Nero D'Avola from Sicily a try.
The Ceuso Scurati Nero D'Avola is a great place to start.
Easter is here, and possibly Spring. Normally I would mention a wide range of wines to go with your Easter dinner, but I am going to focus on one white that will be a crowd pleaser. I'm talking about the Dom L'Enclos Gros Manseng which I have written about before as a general favorite. This is one of those obscure French white wines that is a wonderful alternative to riesling which many have relied on for Easter dinner year after year. The wine is bright and floral, with apricot and honey notes.
