External Reviews for Feudo Maccari Nero d'Avola Sicilia IGT Saia
Antonio Moretti, who owns Sette Ponti and La Fornace in Tuscany, established this estate south of Syracuse in 2000, where the nero vines are between 10 and 50 years old. The aroma of this wine is beautiful, an earthy powerhouse of herbs thatandrsquo;s matched by a tidal wave of flavor. Strawberry, honey, jasmine and oak combine in a superrich mouthful, relieved by a slightly green bite of tannin in the end. Serve this with a ribeye to absorb some of the oak and bring out the inherent fineness of the wine.
This has a subtle yet complex nose, showing ripe black cherry aromas, with hints of oregano, sea salt and lavender. Medium- to full-bodied, with a quietly intense palate, fine tannins and a tight, medium finish. Needs to fill out a bit. Best after 2009.
Saia is opaque deep violet in color with aromas of dark and bitter red cherry, spearmint, spice and oak nuances. These lead into a velvety palate of lush, exotically concentrated fruit balanced by a fine acidic underpinning and ripe, sweet tannins. The long, penetrating finish ends on notes of wood, spice and pepper.
Has a pretty dark in color, with intense aromas of plum sauce and dried flowers. Full-bodied, with polished, velvety tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Needs a little more bottle age to come together, but this is very serious. Delicious. Best from 2009 through 2012.
