This ripe, sun-drenched blend of Nero drsquo;Avola, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon delivers generous tones of leather, tobacco, licorice, cassis berry, dried hay and spice. It has thick, dark concentration and a long finish.

The estatersquo;s 2004 Ceuso, 50% Nero drsquo;Avola, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot, spent 12 months in French oak followed by six months in cement prior to being bottled. A compelling array of smoke, cassis, spices, mint, coffee beans, dark cherries and sweet toasted oak flow from its generous, structured frame. This elegant, expansive wine needs another year or two in bottle to come together, but it is a sumptuous red that is sure to deliver much pleasure. Anticipated maturity: 2009ndash;2019.

Wine Spectator ReviewLots of ripe damson plum, oak, and earthy, slightly ferrous minerals on the nose and palate. Full-bodied, with firm tannins and lots of flavor. Long finish. Shows promise. Nero d'Avola, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Best after 2007.

Herersquo;s a toasty and earthy wine that is given more dimension thanks to lush notes of vanilla, blackberry, leather and pipe tobacco. The finish rides over spicy notes and the tannins are tight and dusty.

This estate is located in the hills between the communes of Salemi and Trapani. Mr. Melia, the proprietor, owns many hectares of which 22 are cultivated to vine on limestone and clay soils. Density of planting of 4,600 vines per hectare and production of about 45 to 50 hectoliters per hectare. The climate is mild in winter with dry and windy conditions during spring and summer. Harvest is done by hand, usually at the end of September.

Ripe, almost raisiny red fruit aromas with notes of smoke and underbrush. Shows lush fruit in the mouth, along with a pleasing saltiness. Finishes with chewy, rather noble tannins and rather crisp, persistent flavors. This cabernet/merlot blend can hold its own with all the better-known examples from Sicily.
