Description

Robert Parker’s Italian reviewer Monica Larner bestowed a coveted 90-point rating on the 2013 vintage, commenting that “it pushes Nero d’Avola to the extreme” and that it’s the proverbial “Big Boy”. Wait till you taste this 2016, perhaps the vintage of the century. It’s like drinking a Christmas fruitcake in a glass, slightly Amarone like. With significantly more oak influence than we’re used to seeing with this traditionally workman-like grape, this is a rich, satisfying wine.

Smells

Mountains of fruitcake, jam-packed with wild raspberries, rose petals, tobacco, vanilla and even sprigs of spearmint leaves.

Tastes

An opulent palate for Nero. Red and dark berries, fruitcake and spice, tobacco and vanilla. The texture is spot on, silky smooth tannins in league with zippy acidity. It's the whole package. Drink now, or cellar to 2028, with roast pork loin.
