- Score: 87 Vintage 2019 Vinous Media Peppery herbs and florals mix with a note of freshly sliced plum as the 2019 Nero d'Avola opens up in the glass. Itâ€™s soft and fleshy in feel, matching ripe black fruits with sweet spices and nervous acidity. Notes of cedar and tobacco linger long, as this finishes a bit chewy and dry.
