About Our Ratings

Feudo Maccari 2011 Nero d'Avola, IGT Sicilia
The Feudo Maccari lies just over a mile from the sea, and basks in a dry, sun drenched Sicilian climate. The vineyards lie 240 feet above sea level on southerly exposed slopes, and the predominant volcanic soil profile is mixed in a few areas with white sand and chalk deposits. Mediterranean winds moderate the climate and aerate the clusters. Yields are restricted, and at harvest the clusters are handpicked, sorted, destemmed, and put into a conveyer-belt apparatus which breaks the skins rather than crushes the berries. Fermentation takes place in a combination of temperature controlled stainless steel and lined open-top fermenters. Cooperage consists primarily of 225-liter barriques with some capacity in 500-litre tonneaux. The previous vintage scored 91 points in the Wine Advocate who said “Feudo Maccari's 2010 Nero d'Avola is an absolutely ridiculous wine for the money. Dark cherries, flowers, licorice and tobacco come to life in this medium bodied, expressive wine. There is more than enough underlying structure to ensure at least several years of exceptional drinking. If this were Burgundy, the price would be twice as high. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2018."
