    Magnum. Deep and rich in colour, almost opaque with an intense nose of spice, chocolate and plums. On the palate the wine is well balanced with ripe, spicy fruit and a savoury character. The finish is long and tasty.

    Each magnum is individually packed to unsure it arrives in pristine condition.

Press ReviewPress

Complex, with evident ripeness; powerful but with minerality and restraint. Still relatively youthful, with firm backbone. Stylish example of modern Nero d’Avola. 5* 19/10

Peter McCombieDecanter Magazine, Italy Supplement

Lush black cherry nose, with a hint of chocolate. Suave and seamless, concentrated and spicey, with grip and complexity, but has elegance too despite an appealing earthiness. Long. 18/20

Stephen BrookDecanter Magazine

I've been tasting this vintage for quite a while now, and it just gets better and better. The genius of the Nero d'Avola grape is that it is absurdly delicious when it's literally being squirted out of the vat: fizzing with fresh, joyous blackberry fruit that you don't really expect in such a hot, sunny place as Sicily, but as it ages, sure the wine mellows, but the riot of blackberry and blueberry richness is undiminished, a delicate lily scent still flits above the rim of the glass and you try to tell yourself maturity has made it more serious, but it hasn't.
