A more subtle Saia than in the past with freshly picked mulberries, elderberries, tobacco, cedar and resin. Full-bodied and very tight on the palate with polished tannins and a long finish. The combination of dark fruit and minerals is irresistible.See detailed press review

A pure expression of Nero d'Avola, the 2016 Sicilia Saia is a rich and contemporary expression of this versatile Sicilian grape. The bouquet is layered and rich with plump cherry nuances followed by tobacco, spice and charred earth. This is a lavish and soft wine that maintains a mid- to full-bodied approach with soft tannins and sweet fruit endnotes.See detailed press review
