The 2004 Tancredi is a blend of 70% Nero d'Avola and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in French oak is endowed with notable warmth and richness in its fruit. Herb chocolate and toasted oak nuances also come to the forefront adding further complexity. The Cabernet is very much felt in the structure and density of the wine. All of the wine's elements come together in an engaging and utterly satisfying glass of wine. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2016.

Opaque very dark and quite dense the color is still quite youthful. On the nose this lovely blend of Nero d'Avola and Cabernet is showing some secondary evolution with dark fruits saddle leather cinnamon and fennel. In the mouth the wine is round supple and full with the black fruits and secondary flavors knitting together nicely adding notes of leather and a touch of forest floor. Finishes long with tar bittersweet chocolate dark cherry and moderate tannins. The Nero d'Avola's often boisterous fruit has subsided somewhat allowing the Cabernet to come to fore. Today this beautiful wine drinks like a third or fourth growth Bordeaux a testament to Donnafugata's supreme dedication to quality.
