2019 Donnafugata Mille e Una Notte' Sicilia

2019 Donnafugata Mille e Una Notte' Sicilia

Southern Italy /Sicily /Nero d'Avola

Size: 750ML


"Attractive red and darker berry character with dark licorice, aged citrus peel and moist earth. Full and complex with firm tannins framing the dark and blue fruit. It has a chalky, mineral backbone that adds structure and length, leading to a deep and long finish."

-94 Points, James Suckling

"The 2019 Sicilia Mille e Una Notte is a blend of Nero d'Avola, Petit Verdot, Syrah and other complementary grapes. Tasted quite young, this wine needs more age and certainly another year or two in bottle. The oak spice needs more time to melt into the beautiful dark fruit supplied in this classic vintage. The bouquet peels back to reveal black cherry, spice and baking chocolate. The concentration is medium rich, and its texture is velvety."

-94 Points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"The nose offers shades of black—from black cherries to blackberries to dark chocolate and black licorice, with pepper and mixed spices that become more powerful on the palate, thanks to a medicinal, astringent bite of roots and herbs outlined by austere, unforgiving tannins."
