  • Score: 89 Vintage 2016 James Suckling A slightly jammy red with plenty of raisins and desiccated fruit. Plush and fruit-forward, but lacking a sense of direction and poise. Drink now. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 88 Vintage 2016 Vinous Media The 2016 Nero d'Avola Avulisi is a dark, rich expression that mixes ripe plums and cherries with hints of brown sugar and tobacco. Its silky textures flesh out across a palate of black fruits, as grippy tannins and inner earth notes mount toward the close. This finishes structured yet balanced, revealing hints of licorice and currants. Unfortunately, I find the Avulisi to be lacking in energy and freshness. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 87 Vintage 2016 Wine Enthusiast Made with organically grown Nero d'Avola, this opens with aromas of roasted coffee bean, toasted oak and ripe dark-skinned berry. The assertive palate offers blackberry jam, mocha and toasted oak alongside close-grained tannins. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
