2016 Gulfi "NeroBaronj" Nero d'Avola Sicilia

SKU #1443882 93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Good full medium red. Riveting high-pitched perfume of raspberry, blood orange and violet, lifted by hints of lemon and talc. Clean, focused, and well delineated, with strong minerality and fresh spices lifting the raspberry fruit and very floral flavors. Easygoing and very drinkable already, this expresses a very silky texture. Finishes vibrant and very long, with subtle perfume of strawberry and violet. A pretty wine. Drink through 2027. (ID) 93+ Inner quote mark (8/2019)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2016 NeroBaronj is a dark and saturated expression with aromas of dried cherry, plum and licorice. The bouquet is direct and sharp, and the wine avoids some of those more distinctive Nero d'Avola aromas such as scorched earth and black olive. Those variety-driven aromas are downplayed here in favor of more direct or pungent fruit. Drink through 2026. (ML) 92+ Inner quote mark (10/2019)

K&L Notes

The estate was founded in 1996 when Vito Catania founded Gulfi with the help of Salvo Foti. Today its vineyards are situated in the wine-growing zones of Noto, Etna, and Cerasuolo di Vittoria, and are cultivated using organic farming methods. The vines are trained into small bushes, known as the alberello system, and must be harvested by hand.
