Feudo Maccari Saia 2011

Feudo Maccari Saia 750ml 2011     
Sku: 1830402

3 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

Twenty- to 30-year-old vines are planted to south-facing vineyards 80 meters above sea level in volcanic soil with white sand and chalk deposits. The fruit is handpicked and the skins are gently broken. Fermentation is in stainless steel tanks and lined vats with regular punching down. A first blending of lots takes place when the wine is placed in barrique; a second at the first racking. The wines are then bottled with minimum intervention.

Tasting notes
Offers aromas and flavors of dark and sour red cherries, spearmint, spice and oak. A velvety palate of lush, concentrated fruit balanced by a fine acidic underpinning and ripe, sweet tannins ends in a long finish.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 90 points (May 2014)
Feudo Maccaris 2011 Nero dAvola Saia is a beautiful rendition of this native Sicilian grape that delivers smooth fruit and cherry sensations backed by dark spice, chocolate and moist chewing tobacco. The wine ages in oak for up to 16 months and you can feel that extra intensity and softness as the wine caresses the palate. Nero dAvolas personality comes through in terms of the bright acidity and aromas of scorched earth. Drink 2014-2020.

Food pairing
A superb match for full-flavored meats and game.
