Saia Nero Davola Sicilia IGT Feudo Maccari 2010

External Review by WineExpress.com:

Here is a robust and luxurious Sicilian Nero d’Avola from the founder of Tenuta Sette Ponti in Tuscany, Mario Moretti. Twenty- to 30-year-old vines are planted to south-facing vineyards 250 feet above sea level in volcanic soil with white sand and chalk deposits. The fruit was handpicked and the skins were gently broken. Fermentation was in stainless steel tanks and lined vats. After 20 days of regular punching down and topping of the cap, the wine underwent an initial blending and spent 12 to 14 months aging in French barriques, with a second blending at first racking. The wine was then aged for another six months in bottle prior to release. It received 90 points from Wine Enthusiast Magazine who said "Characteristics of toasted almond and pistachio shine through as soon as you put your nose to the glass. Those notes are followed by bright cherry and blackberry, plus fresh sensations of acidity." It also received the coveted Tre Bicchieri from the Italian wine bible Gambero Rosso.
