The wine is masculine and dense with thick layers of cherry, blackberry preserves, spice, leather and tobacco. The fruit has reached an optimal level of ripeness and those greenish or herbal notes you sometimes get from Nero d'Avola are completely absent. This gives the wine a classic style and approachable appeal. Starting with the 2012 vintage, Sàgana is a Sicilia DOC wine. - Monica Larner collapse
