Feudo Maccari Saia Nero d'Avola 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

A spicy red, featuring crushed black cherry, blackberry and plum notes that carry hints of melted licorice, vanilla bean, incense and earth through to the slightly grippy finish. Drink now through 2014.

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 thatrsquo;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.

Showing a deep ruby-violet color in the glass, this ambitious Nero d'Avola boasts a complex nose of bright red cherry and plum with floral undertones and notes of fresh, savory herbs and spice. The palate is medium bodied with a balanced display of... Chris Caughman. A Nero d'Avola wine from Sicily in Italy. 2007 Feudo Maccari Saia 750ml

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.

This has subtle aromas of blackberry, mineral and lavender. Full-bodied, with soft, silky tannins and a long, flavorful finish. A succulent red. All in the right place. A classy wine. Drink now.

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.
