Montalto Nero d’Avola / Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

I found this wine using my bargain hunting page This wine displays a nice cassis flavor. Not a lot of depth or complexity but then for the price one would not expect it. All in all this is quite good, but don’t expect a varietal Cab Sauv. 

Description from

Montalto Nero d’Avola / Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 IGT Sicilia Italy
A recent Gold Medal winner in the $9 to $15 red wine category at the Ottawa Wine and Food Show this out-scored wines costing half again as much,  great value. Nero d’Avola is a grape indigenous to Sicily and makes up 80% of this red blend. There are rich and robust aromas of black briary berry black licorice and earthy nuances that segue richly concentrated fruit flavours that wash over the palate in delicious wave, black raspberry Bing cherry and red pie cherry along with subtle notes of espresso roast and mocha. It’s medium bodied generously textured well balanced and sports a lingering finish. What’s not to like? (VH) (621151) $10.00 Rating 4.5/5 from Winecurrent
