The 2013 Sicilia Saia offers dark cherry and dried blackberry with a good amount of spice, leather and tar at the back. This is a full and complete expression of Nero d'Avola that exhibits the soft and sophisticated side of the grape. The wine is aged in oak for 14 months and both its structure and persistence are well evident as a result. (ML)
Antonio Moretti, owner of Tenuta Setti Ponti in Tuscany, began buying vineyard land in Sicily in 2000. He now owns close to 620 acres near the island’s southern tip, in the region of Noto. The 2013 Saia, from alberello-trained vines, is dark and earthy, with notes of tobacco and damp leaves swirling through flavors of black and red berries. Mineral tones add to the grippy structure, and it finishes warm and spicy, ready for braised lamb shanks.
Medium-bodied and stylish, with fine-grained tannins married to a rich palate of chocolate pudding, crème de cassis, dried marjoram and graphite notes. Lightly grippy, but refined overall. (AN)
