      "Sweet almond paste, young peaches, hints of flint and smoke waft up from the 2018 Carjcanti.

There's a lovely cut of acidity here as this finishes with youthful tension, revealing hints of hazelnut and inner florals." Vinous

      Deep ruby red. Intense scent of raspberry, red cherry, violets and spices. Sweet, spicy and yet light on its feet, it convinces with a great inner energy that gives the red fruits, herbs and mineral flavours an impressive expression. In the never-ending finish, Nerobaronj shows itself vibrant and with distinctive tannin, which gives additional emphasis. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2017 NeroBaronj seduces with its zesty display of crushed cherries, sweet exotic spices and dried roses. This is soft and round in feel, offset by bright acids and tart wild berry fruits, which creates a sweet and sour impression toward the close. Energy remains high, even as chalky mineral notes and wild herbs come forward; yet the end note here is, without a doubt, a lasting echo of vivid citrus-tinged blackberry. The NeroBaronj, a varietal Nero d'Avola, is a crowd-pleaser." Vinous

    About the winemakersGulfiSicily
    Gulfi

    From the climatically very favoured extreme south of Sicily between Vittoria, Noto and Pachino, exciting wines have been coming for decades, which do not at all resemble the sometimes even jam-sweet tasting Nero d'Avola plants from other island regions. The most important wine of this princely grape variety is the family winery Gulfi from the small town of Chiaramonte Gulfi, advised by the oenologist and agronomist Salvo Foti, for its unmistakable style. The fascinating, complex and fine-tuned organic wines of the visionary and determined owner of the Vito Catania estate vary greatly depending on the soil conditions and the extension of the vineyards. However, they all ripen under excellent conditions and have a surprisingly fresh acid structure.

    The history of the Gulfi winery in the province of Ragusa began with a farm inherited from the father with a vineyard in the cool and calcareous Monti Iblei. Immediately Vito Catania, who already as a child followed the technical discussions of the parents in the domestic environment with interest, drove the development despite smaller setbacks briskly forward. The Milanese businessman with Sicilian roots quickly developed the beautiful property into a model business. From the very beginning, Catania's declared aim has been to produce wines that reflect their terroir uncompromisingly, without quickly following ephemeral fashion trends. Especially the Nero d'Avola helped the Catania/Foti leadership duo, building on the tradition of previous generations, to reassert themselves and establish a clear identity.

    With manure improved by green manure, the soils which are particularly suitable for viticulture and very diverse from a geological point of view are made fertile. Additional irrigation is not required in plots planted almost exclusively with autochthonous varieties, such as the ancient white Carricante grape. The vines, which are up to 70 years old, are raised in the classic Alberello system. It should also be mentioned that the Catania family selected clones from Etna and planted them together with some Chardonnay grapes from Burgundy on the slopes of the Monti Iblei.

    The Gulfi winery is located near Randazzo (on Mount Etna), Chiaramonte Gulfi (in the southwest) and Pachino (in the east at sea level). The historical plots of Maccari, Bufaleffi, Baroni and San Lorenzo, acquired in the Val di Noto and recultivated with great effort, provide the grapes for some of Sicily's most expressive single vineyard wines, which can be enjoyed without regret even at an advanced age. The vinification of all Kreszenzen is carried out as naturally as possible and without falsifying technical tricks, the aging in wooden barrels very carefully. SUPERIORE.DE

    "When I think of producers of Nero d’Avola wines, comes to mind as one of the first names Gulfi. The winery produces some vineyard wines that offer the chance to explore the different nuances of this great Sicilian variety."Robert Parker
