such a full-bodied wine is great to go with strong flavors such as cavati (type of pasta) with pork sauce, oven-baked meat or vegetable pasta. For the second course, you have many choices: Nero d'Avola is excellent with rare red meat, falsi magri dishes (low fat but tasty) and braised meat but also with exotic dishes, such as chicken curry or tuna sushi. A real treat with medium-aged and aged cow, sheep and goat cheeses.
