Feudo Maccari Saia Nero D'Avola 2018

Product description

The Feudo Maccari lies just over a mile from the sea and basks in a dry, sun-drenched climate verging on torrid in the summer months. Mediterranean winds moderate the climate and aerate the clusters, and some irrigation is required during the hot, dry season. The vineyards lie 240 feet above sea level on southerly exposed slopes, and the predominant volcanic soil profile is mixed in a few areas with white sand and chalk deposits. 

Bright, intense ruby red colour, with alternating sensations of mature fruit and sweet, elegant notes of spice. Explosive flavour and full body, yet very fresh, bursting with charisma.

93 Points - James Suckling

Sweet and sour cherry with walnut and toasted oak aromas that follow through to a full body with juicy fruit and chewy tannin on the palate. Savoury. Smoky meat at the end with lovely fruit. Drink now or hold.

92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Here is another pure expression of Nero d'Avola that aspires to bring us the most sophisticated and nuanced approach to a grape that is too often relegated to basic workhorse functions far below its potential. Wines like this have successfully carved out a space for high-end Sicilian reds in retailers worldwide. The Feudo Maccari 2018 Sicilia Saia is proud and generous, with thick layers of dark fruit folded into soft oak and spice.
