2006 Gulfi "NeroBaronj" Sicilia IGT

SKU #1132880 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2006 Nero d’Avola Nerobaronj emerges from the glass with compelling, exotic inner perfume in its super-ripe red cherries, black currants, chocolate, flowers, spices and licorice. Soft and succulent throughout, the Nerobaronj impresses for its superb balance and round, harmonious finish. This is a magnificent Nero d’Avola from Gulfi. The super-ripe style is vaguely Amarone-like and it is breathtaking. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2026.  (6/ 2010)

The 2006 Gulfi "Baronj" Sicilia IGT takes things to the next level. Layers of cherry liquor, black raspberry, clove and exotic spice still leave room for textural minerality to poke through the rich yet balanced palate.

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
