feudo montoni nero d'avola
Here is a fabulous value wine from a great vintage. The Sicilia Nero d'Avola Vigna Lagnusa is a rich and penetrating wine with a full load of primary fruit. The wine flaunts its youth and its freshness with vibrant notes of blackberry, plum, black currant, simple spice and toasted almond. What I love about this gorgeous Nero d'Avola is that it delivers varietal intensity and purity. It is never weighed down by those burnt pistachio aromas you sometimes get with the grape from less fortunate sites. Instead, this property with clay limestone soils on a high plain near the center of the island offers uniform growing conditions for consistent and very fruit-forward wines. Named after the Sicilian word for lazy ("lagnusa") because of its low yields, the Lagnusa cru is a vineyard to watch in the future.
