Refined stuff with true tannins and great drive, this age-worthy and classically built-up red has multi-layered flavors of dried herbs, cassis, cherries and a whiff of chocolatey oak, framed by precise acidity and most evident minerality. Individual stuff.

Outstanding Sicily wine; made at Regaleali by Laura Orsi for Tasca d'Almerita at their central mountain location; blends nero d'avola (60%) with equal bits of franc and cabernet in a oak matured coil of flavour

Vanilla, Balsamico, spice, tobacco and some fur notes. Medium to high acidity, some cherry stone notes in the aftertaste. Long finish.

Overall rich and complex, but not my style. I think it's very heavy wine and maybe after 5 years will be more pleasant to drink.

I see the other reviews and strongly disagree. This is a bold expression of elegant rose and cherry. Robust burst of leather but smooth finish

Espresso, leather, tabac, good balance, rich, also a bit austere.

A ten year old infant that smells like old leather. Now I'm interested.
