Donnafugata Tancredi 2016

Last unit sold for $40.00

Product description

Tancredi 2016, deep ruby red, is characterized by a fragrant bouquet with red fruit notes of mulberry and blueberry, with delicate hints of licorice and sweet tobacco. In the mouth it offers a structure with important and well-integrated tannins. An enveloping and persistent finish. It will find its best pairing T-bone steak, gourmet burgers and game. Delicious also with beef Stroganoff with mushrooms.

93 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate     Donnafugata's Tancredi is one of Sicily's most popular red wines, and it's easy to see why. The 2016 Tancredi is rich and soft at the same time, with a very pleasing texture that caresses the palate with dark fruit, spice and plum. The wine is mostly a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Nero d'Avola, although some Tannat and other grapes are thrown in. It ages in oak for 14 months. This is a complete effort that boasts thick layering and volume. Some 89,000 bottles were made.

92 Points - James Suckling     A firm, tight red with dark-berry, stone, walnut-shell and steel character. Medium body and lightly hewn tannins. Better in a year or two. Drink from 2020.

91 Points - Wine Enthusiast     This opens with earthy aromas of darkskinned berry, new leather, cedar and tilled soil. The savory palate delivers black plum, cassis, tobacco and licorice alongside fine-grained tannins. Enjoy through 2025.
