    • "Saia" Nero d'Avola Sicilia DOC 2016

      “Saia” Nero d’Avola Sicilia DOC 2016

      The pure Nero d'Avola is full of dark aromas of berries, black cherry, liquorice and tobacco. On the palate lush and distinctive with a wonderful spicy note of mint, aniseed and espresso. A really great wine at an impressively low price! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Dark ruby red. Spicy dark fruity nose, liquorice, cocoa powder, rich cherry, but also violets and dried red rose petals. On the palate melty, fruit sweet and fine, opens with tightly woven, juicy tannin, good length, fine pressure." Falstaff

      "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." Robert Parker

      "A more subtle Saia than in the past with freshly picked mulberries, elderberries, tobacco, cedar and resin. Full-bodied and very tight on the palate with polished tannins and a long finish. The combination of dark fruit and minerals is irresistible." James Suckling

      Expressive, intense white wine from the local Grillo grape, which began its quiet career as the exclusive "house wine" of the Moretti family and is only available in small quantities even today. A wide bouquet of exotic fruits, flowers and flint, fruity, soft and very harmonious on the palate. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Intense, bright straw yellow. Attractive and inviting nose, very elegant and delicate, great integrated wood nuances and ripe, yellow fruit tones. Taut, salty and mineral on the palate, full-bodied with beautiful play, gripping and elegant at the same time, a great surprise! Falstaff

      "The 2017 Grillo Family and Friends opens to robust aromas of summer peach, zesty orange peel, pineapple and exotic fruit. Some 11,000 bottles were made. This wine is refined in a combination of oak and egg-shaped concrete vats for seven months. This is a mid-weight white that delivers silky sensations of honey and peach syrup to the palate. The finish is spicy and tart with a distant hint of cinnamon." Robert Parker

      "Exotic aromas of dried peaches and pineapples with hints of apples. Lots of white pepper, too. Full body and vivid acidity that drives the wine with energy and flavor. Gorgeous finish." James Suckling

    • "Maharis" Syrah Sicilia DOC 2014

      “Maharis” Syrah Sicilia DOC 2014

      Maharis is a modern and elegant Syrah, the intense bouquet with clear tones of blackberry, exotic spices, dark plums, sweet cherries and a fine smoky note. Very juicy and soft on the palate, velvety structure. Sicily and Syrah are a happy combination, as this wine impressively proves. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Rich, sparkling ruby with violet. Open, inviting nose with intense notes of ripe elderberries and blackberries, white pepper and sandalwood in the background. Juicy in the base and course, shows plump, dark berry fruit, crunchy and fresh. Much sweet enamel, fine-meshed tannin." Falstaff

      "Violet and spice notes accent the ripe blackberry and wild strawberry fruit in this creamy, expressive red, which marries supple tannins with a silky texture and a rich, minerally underpinning that lingers on the finish." Wine Spectator

      "The Feudo Maccari 2014 Sicilia Syrah Mahâris offers toasted notes of almond husk and Spanish cedar in front of dark fruit, sweet blackberry pie and black spice. This is a masculine and powerful wine that delivers ample muscle and brawn. It presents a thick and chewy structure with loads of dark, plump fruit that should carry it forward over the next five to ten years." Robert Parker

      "Aromas of dark fruit, spices and flint follow through to a medium to full body, fine tannins and a smoky, fruity and spicy finish. White pepper and ripe fruit make this wine seductive." James Suckling

    • "Maharis" Syrah Sicilia DOC 2016

      “Maharis” Syrah Sicilia DOC 2016

      2016 was a very balanced wine year in Sicily and this exceptional wine is the current example of how the Syrah grape variety in particular can reach its peak in this exciting wine region.

      Deep dark, sparkling ruby red. In the bouquet an opulent dark red fruit basket, intense and full-bodied. Already in the first sip a depth, which looks for unequalled in this price range. It is almost spectacular in which heights this wine is able to carry the connoisseur. He always convinces with an indescribable balance. Maharis is never fat or marmalade, but his potpourri of dark fruits, spices, mature leather and a subtle smoky note is always in balance with a surprising freshness and liveliness. In the finale it closes long, velvety and with rich texture. Great. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Sparkling ruby with a slight violet hue. Opened with pronounced spicy notes, cardamom and eucalyptus, beautiful blueberry fruit, very clear. On the palate, polished and juicy, tannin with a good grip, a pithy finish." Falstaff

      "An elegant, medium- to full-bodied Syrah, with muscular tannins providing fine definition for the flavors of black plum, olive tapenade and fig cake, showing minerally smoke and iron accents. Offers a well-spiced, chewy finish." Wine Spectator

      "A spicy syrah that shows lots of freshness with balsamic, crushed stones, violets and black pepper. Full body, steely tannins and a mineral finish. Shows excellent composure and definition." James Suckling

      "The 2016 Sicilia Syrah Mahâris is an inky dark and concentrated wine that marries the warmth of Sicily to heat-loving Syrah. You get some varietal tones of white pepper, bacon fat and chocolate, but these aromas are not as prominent as you might find in the great Syrahs of the Old and New World. In the case of this wine, that sunny Sicilian softness takes center stage and shapes sweet fruit and dark cherry flavors. To me, the Sicilian identity is ultimately stronger in this vintage of Mahâris than its varietal identity. That's what I love best about this wine." Robert Parker

    About the winemakers
    Feudo Maccari
    Sicily
    Feudo Maccari

    The magnificent Feudo Maccari winery, managed by Antonio Moretti, is situated between Noto and Pachino in the province of Syracuse, in a lush Baroque landscape and thus in one of the best wine-growing areas in Sicily. The winegrower, who is firmly anchored in his Tuscan homeland as the owner of the Tenuta Sette Ponti and the Poggio al Lupo estate, began a new wine adventure immediately after the turn of the millennium out of love for the beautiful and wild nature of the Mediterranean island. Together with his daughter Monica, he brought about half of the total area of the old fief for the cultivation of vines to fruition. Moretti has thus gradually restored the former glory of the long neglected cultivation zone. In the family business, the grapes - including newly planted vines - are grown using the Alberello method. Feudo Maccari includes several residences, a guest house, a wine tasting room and a restored and functionally equipped wine cellar surrounded by vineyards.

    The buscher education after the Alberello procedure in the midst of lemon, carob and almond trees, dwarf palms and olive groves has a long tradition in the eastern part of Sicily. The area between Noto and Pachino is also particularly suitable for the cultivation of Nero d'Avola. The Sicilian red parade variety and speciality of Feudo Maccari can play out its characteristics particularly well here thanks to the special microclimate and the extremely fertile volcanic soil. Cultivated in the winery next to Nero d'Avola the local white wine variety Grillo as well as Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Moscato. It is also thanks to the Moretti family that some vines planted about 60 years ago have been revived in all the old vineyards.

    The Feudo Maccari winery is located as the crow flies a few kilometres from the Ionian Sea and just a stone's throw from the Vendicari Nature Reserve. In addition to the special climatic conditions, the meticulous work in the vineyard ensures healthy and optimally ripening grapes. The different characteristics of the terrain - black and white, clayey and calcareous - as well as the differences in altitude and exposure of the sites, make Feudo Maccari an extremely complex, delicious and terroir-true wine of impressive quality, characterised by great strength of character and elegance. Since the first bottlings, the labels of the Sicilian wine house have been convincing with a precise and clearly defined style, accompanied by only a few human interventions. With the support of the oenology team of Carlo Ferrini and Gioia Cresti, all the red wines are aged in French oak barrels. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Moretti was attracted to Sicilian viticulture from an early age and set out to produce great Sicilian red wines that matched his Supertoscans." Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

    "The wines are all of excellent quality and more concerned with elegance and finesse than with concentration."Gambero Rosso
