Wine Advocate Review
Rated 94+
This is one of Sicily's iconic red wines. The 2015 Noto Santa Cecilia shows a new change of clothes with this vintage. I was immediately struck by the direct and chiseled quality of the bouquet that makes a break from some of the heavier and more extracted aromas of the past. The aromas are bright and buoyant with ruby cherry followed by creme de cassis and dried cranberry. I love the way those perfumes caress and embrace the senses. The mouthfeel is perhaps less impactful in terms of length. It does show elegantly integrated tannins and fresh acidity, but I wish it lasted longer. This new and beautiful vintage of Santa Cecilia opens a new chapter, and I can't wait to try future releases.

Wine Tasting Notes
very spicy fruity wine, brilliant and clear, perfumed with carob, bergamot and orange peel. The compact ripe fruit and balsamic notes on the palate dissolve in a sweet and vigorous manner to accompany tannins of dense texture but also open and calibrated to the structure of this wine of deep baritone tones. Traces of graphite confer elements of a high tasting lineage while cleverly elicited wild blackberry and cherry maintain the wine on a register of rigorous style and taste.
