Why do we love this wine?

What’s that? Luca Maroni, Italy’s greatest wine critic, has given this red a staggering 99 points? Just to be clear, his scale goes up to 99. This is the ceiling, the pinnacle, sheer perfection. And just to put a bow on it, Vivino places this in the top 2% of all wines worldwide. Whoa!

This wine is a blend of Sicilian native nero d’avola, and the French merlot. The combo produces a powerful blend of plush, ripe berries and structure, with future to age for many years. It shows balance, in spite of the power, with great freshness and acidity giving lift and relief from the densely concentrated body. It’s a crossover hit really - you get the exotic nero and the familiar merlot. An absolute delight that won’t last long.
