Sicily At a Glance

Region Name Sicily

  • Score: 89 Vintage 2019 Vinous Media The 2019 Nero d'Avola wafts up with a dark, alluring yet understated bouquet of crushed rocks, peppery herbs and black currants. Its silky textures are nicely complemented by mineral-tinged wild berries and zesty acids, enlivening the experience even further. Shades of purple and lavender define the finale, as this tapers off long to sweet inner floral notes. There’s a lot to like about this nicely balanced effort, which is also an excellent value.

  • Score: 87 Vintage 2018 Wine Enthusiast This easygoing red opens with dark berry and Mediterranean brush aromas. The soft, savory palate offers black cherry, star anise and a hint of white pepper alongside velvety tannins. Drink soon. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 87 Vintage 2018 Wine Advocate Made in a simple and easy-drinking style, the unoaked 2018 Sicilia Nero d'Avola offers youthful brightness and variety-driven notes of wild cherry, cassis, licorice, potting soil and chopped black olives. There is a momentary layer of grilled fennel seed, and that completes what is no doubt an authentically Sicilian presentation. This Sicilian red would match nicely with an amatriciana. Production is 80,000 bottle strong. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
