Feudo Maccari Saia 2016
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. The wine is aged in mostly neutral barrique and tonneaux for up to 14 months. Some 70,000 bottles were made.
A balanced, medium-bodied version, with light, chewy tannins and a subtle, smoke-tinged undertow, layered with crushed black currant, green olive, fennel seed and rose hip notes. Drink now through 2022. 5,000 cases made, 1,600 cases imported.
