Wine Advocate 92 Points "...represents an impressive achievement. Grapes are sourced from vineyards between 450 and 750 meters above sea level and the wine is aged in mostly neutral oak (with 20% new oak) for one year. The high altitude vineyards have shaped the focused and linear aromas of wild berry and dried cherry. The wood regime has added delicate layers of carob seed and powdered chocolate. This is a very exciting vintage of Lamùri, thanks to its overall balance and intensity."
Winemaker's Notes: Intense ruby-red in color, Lamuri offers lush aromas of black cherry, black fruits, vanilla, tobacco, and wild herbs. On the palate, velvety tannins and refreshing acidity make for an elegant, expressive, crowd-pleasing wine. Lamùri, or “love” in Sicilian dialect, is made entirely from hand-harvested Nero d'Avola grapes. The Tasca family credits the elegance of the final wine to the unique sandy soil and microclimate of this region. After fermentation, the wine is aged in French barriques for one year to add extra finesse.
