I liked it for being 100% N d Avola but there are others. It's pretty alright. The red fruit aromas and easy enought to drink.

It was OK, but kind of bland

Very impressive nose. Perfume-like petrol, leather and dark-berries. Silky smooth finish. Not very long though. Galloni gave it 92, Suckling 85. I'm going with Galloni on this one. Although I don't agree with the "long lingering finish" -part. --- For reference: AIS Duemilavini 5/5. Gambero Rosso 3/3. WS 85 RP 92

I thought I liked it at first, but it just seems to be very bitter.

92 Points Robert Parker. `The estate's flagship 2005 Noa is 40% Nero d' Avola 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot from various regions within Sicily. It is a rich gorgeous wine that opens on the palate with notable expansiveness and harmony in its silky-textured dark fruit herbs graphite and toasted oak. It offers superb persistence and a long lingering finish. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2016.`

Sàgana IGT 2005 - Cusumano : Sàgana IGT 2005 - Rotwein von CusumanoDie Sizilianer nennen ihren Nero d´Avola zärtlich "Principe Siciliano" - der Prinz. Dieser Rotwein funkelt im Glas tiefdunkelrot. Der Sàgana IGT 2005 von Rotwein von Cusumano als lupenreiner Nero d´Avola duftet nach Waldbeeren und Sauerkirschen. Am Gaumen erfreut er mit seiner würzigen Struktur, die von einer feinen Mineralität und süßlichen Pflaumennoten umspielt wird. Dazu gesellen sich Noten von Piment und Schokolade. Der Wein präsentiert sich konzentriert und dicht mit einer erstklassigen Säurestruktur. Er ist besonders zu kräftigen Gerichten von Rind und Schwein, Braten in dunklen Saucen und gegrilltem Fleisch sowie würzigen Käsevariationen zu empfehlen.Weingut: CusumanoLand: ItalienRegion: SizilienRebsorte: Nero d´AvolaInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 13,5 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 6,1 g/lRestsüße: 3,5 g/lAuszeichnungen für den Cusumano Sàgana IGT:Veronelli: 2 Sterne (Jg.2004) Gambero Rosso: 3 Gläser (Jg.2004) Duemilavini: 4 Trauben (Jg.2004)Duemilavini: 5 Trauben (Jg.2003) Wine Spectator: 90 Punkte (Jg.2004) Rotwein > Italien > Sizilien
