Feudo Maccari 2016 Saia Nero d'Avola
Feudo Maccari 2016 Saia Nero d'Avola
Feudo Maccari 2016 Saia Nero d'Avola

Deep scarlet-red in color. Brilliant and intense. The nose reveals decisive scents of red currant and blackberry, followed by spicy and balsamic hints of black pepper and eucalyptus.

James Suckling - 95 Points
"A more subtle Saia than in the past with freshly picked mulberries, elderberries, tobacco, cedar and resin. Full-bodied and very tight on the palate with polished tannins and a long finish. The combination of dark fruit and minerals is irresistible."

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 92 Points
"A pure expression of Nero d'Avola, the 2016 Sicilia Saia is a rich and contemporary expression of this versatile Sicilian grape. The bouquet is layered and rich with plump cherry nuances followed by tobacco, spice and charred earth. This is a lavish and soft wine that maintains a mid- to full-bodied approach with soft tannins and sweet fruit endnotes. The wine is aged in mostly neutral barrique and tonneaux for up to 14 months. Some 70,000 bottles were made."

Wine & Spirits - 92 Points
"This nero díAvola comes from vines rooted in sand and chalk soils near Sicilyís torrid southeastern tip. The 2016 growing season was slightly cooler than average, allowing the grapes to retain lively acidity along with high-toned scents of mint and sage. Notes of anise, braised fennel and black olive enrich the wineís ripe plum tones, the flavors knit together during one year in barriques. Itís bold and spicy; for braised lamb shanks."
