Donnafugata Tancredi Sicilia IGT 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

The two varieties fuse in fine style. The Cabernet gives the Nero d'Avola a touch of mint, enriching its substantial supply of scents. Notes of licorice, cacao, cherries and bilberries against a sweetish background. The flavors are well-structured, full, absorbing and remarkably persistent.

Donnafugata grew out of the commitment of a family in Sicily that has always believed in the extraordinary enological potential of its land and has 150 years of experience in producing premium wines. Convinced that it is always necessary to be open to change in order to grow and improve, Giacomo Rallo and his wife, Gabriella, launched a new production project in 1983: Donnafugata. Their adventure took wing from the family’s historic cellars in Marsala and the vineyards at Contessa Entellina in the heart of western Sicily and soared as far as the island of Pantelleria. Their children, José and Antonio, joined them and the house accelerated its march along the path of Extreme Quality: a project that focused on attention to detail, which clears the way for entrepreneurial decisions that ever more advanced objectives. As for the future, the young Gabriella and Ferdinando are already being “fully immersed” in the family’s activities Read less

The nose showed crushed wild berries, floral underbrush, licorice and sawmill. On the palate, focused red fruits with cedar and herbal fruit tea filled out every bit of an otherwise tightly wound performance. The finish was long but airy and fresh. I believe this is highly enjoyable now with a good decant but should do even better, if left for a year or two in the cellar.

Elegant and bodied red wine, its bouquet settles on notes of licorice, cocoa, black currant, berries with a hits of mint.
