Description

Details

WS 91 WA 91 W&S 91 Pts - According to Wine Spectator - "Vanilla and mocha notes lead the way in this juicy red, accenting flavors of boysenberry, black olive, grilled herb and black licorice string. Balanced overall, with plush tannins gaining ground on the chewy, brooding finish. Best from 2016 through 2024."

According to Wine Advocate - "The 2011 Nero d’Avola Sagana San Giacomo sees fruit sourced from the 140-hectare Tenuta di San Giacomo near the town of Butera in south-central Sicily. The vineyard is 350 meters above sea level with primarily white limestone soils. This is a big wine (15% alcohol) and modern tones of barbecue spice, teriyaki and smoked bacon woven deep within the folds of the wine’s opulent texture. Oak-related tones of sandalwood, dark chocolate and church incense also emerge (Sagana sees 12 months in oak casks). It’s a deep and satisfying drinking experience, although there’s little left in the way of varietal typicity. Drink 2014-2020."

According to Wine & Spirits - "Oak frames this wine, its tannins and bitterness receding to reveal red fruit and a blue floral note. This is youthful and tart, a little blunt when first opened, needing time in a decanter and a rib eye to blossom."

Tasting Notes - "Ruby red. Smoldering aromas of pepper, crushed elderberries and dark cocoa. Smooth rich flavors of dry plums and figs wake the palate as vanilla oak lingers throughout the finish." 15% ABV.
