James Suckling Review
Rated 94 Points
Fascinating aromas of blackberries, tar, asphalt and flowers. Full body, firm and silky tannins and a bright and fruity finish. Yet in reserve. Needs some time to soften. Better after 2020.
Wine Spectator Review
Rated 91 Points
Ripe strawberry and mulberry flavors are an enticing entry point for this elegant, medium-bodied red. Mouthwatering acidity and light, creamy tannins frame the fruit profile as it transitions to notes of red licorice, graphite, dried thyme and spicy mineral. Nero d'Avola. Drink now through 2027.
Wine Tasting Notes
Intense ruby red color. The bouquet exhibits a great balance between the floral notes where the orange peel is well integrated with spiced notes of indian herbs. On the palate it is fresh, complex and persistent. The acidic components are significant and gives the wine a long life in bottle.
100% Nero d'Avola. Alcohol 14%
