Chalmers Nero d’Avola 2011

Chalmers is the god father for many of the Italian varieties and in general their wines offer good quality drinking at affordable prices.

What does the term weedy mean? The dictionary says ‘physically weak in appearance and containing or covered with weeds’. The synonyms for weedy are undeveloped, frail, weak, thin and undersized. These terms are not something that I would normally associate with quality wine but that is the leading factor in this wine. I think it has to do with the 2011 vintage as it was a cool and wet year. There are notes of plum but they are green and they are mixed with green pepper corns.
