Totally opaque black dark red colour with a vibrant dark red hue. The nose has a perfumed like quality to it with morello and subtle dried cherry scents intermingling with liquorice, earthy incense like notes, fragrant herbs and spice. Juicy ripe morello cherry, blueberry and liquorice fruits decorate the mid weighted palate underscored by infusions of incense, fresh herbs, lightly scorched earth and spice. Ripe chewy mouthfeel with sturdily built tannins providing good structure. Nicely balanced fresh acidity with a slightly robust finish.
Drink over the next 4-5 years.

Other Reviews….
The 2018 Sicilia Nero d'Avola Lagnusa is a well-proportioned expression of this native Sicilian grape that shows equal parts primary intensity with blackberry and cherry contrasted against subtle earthy tones. This is Sicily's Nero d'Avola in all its naked glory. Pair this wine with veal involtini. Drink 2019-2023.
