2013 Feudo Maccari "Saia" Nero d'Avola Sicilia (Elsewhere $25)

SKU #1280302 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2013 Sicilia Saia offers dark cherry and dried blackberry with a good amount of spice, leather and tar at the back. This is a full and complete expression of Nero d'Avola that exhibits the soft and sophisticated side of the grape. The wine is aged in oak for 14 months and both its structure and persistence are well evident as a result. (ML)  (8/2016)

 Antonio Moretti, owner of Tenuta Setti Ponti in Tuscany, began buying vineyard land in Sicily in 2000. He now owns close to 620 acres near the island’s southern tip, in the region of Noto. The 2013 Saia, from alberello-trained vines, is dark and earthy, with notes of tobacco and damp leaves swirling through flavors of black and red berries. Mineral tones add to the grippy structure, and it finishes warm and spicy, ready for braised lamb shanks.  (6/2016)

90 points Wine Spectator

 Medium-bodied and stylish, with fine-grained tannins married to a rich palate of chocolate pudding, crème de cassis, dried marjoram and graphite notes. Lightly grippy, but refined overall. (AN)  (4/2016)

- 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.
