Behold the venerable Don Antonio, one of the first wines to put Nero d'Avola on the world map of native grapes. On the label of the 2016 Sicilia Nero d'Avola Riserva Don Antonio, you'll notice that this wine is now identified as a Riserva, making use of the newly expanded appellation laws of the Sicilia DOC. This is a beautiful medium to full-bodied wine with the type of extraction and thickness that we remember from vintages past and the typical characteristics of the grape. Black fruit and Morello cherry is followed by black olive, grilled fennel, scorched earth and toasted pistachio with bitter chocolate. The aromas are all Sicily. Production is about 30,000 bottles. ML Oct 2019.

Rich, velvety and persistent…

Don Antonio is a fine Nero d’Avola, with a deep purple colour suggesting an aroma of voluptuous ripe cherries, rose, sweet spices, liquorice and cocoa. It is a silky red wine but with an imposing structure enhancing a blend of persuasive and refined tannins. Don Antonio is a perfect match for matured cheeses, roasted red meat and braised wild game. Made by Dr Riccardo Cotarella, one of Italy's very finest winemakers, since 1998.
