    • "Nerobaronj" Nero d'Avola Terre Siciliane IGT 2016 (BIO)

      “Nerobaronj” Nero d’Avola Terre Siciliane IGT 2016 (BIO)

      Deep ruby red. Intense fragrance of raspberry, red cherry, violet and spices. Sweet, spicy and yet light-footed, it convinces with a great inner energy, which gives the red fruits, herbs and mineral aromas an impressive expression. In the never-ending finish, Nerobaronj is vibrant and with distinctive tannin, which gives additional emphasis. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2016 NeroBaronj is a dark and saturated expression with aromas of dried cherry, plum and licorice. The bouquet is direct and sharp, and the wine avoids some of those more distinctive Nero d'Avola aromas such as scorched earth and black olive. Those variety-driven aromas are downplayed here in favor of more direct or pungent fruit (with a touch of buoyant volatility). Some 6,500 bottles were made." Robert Parker

      "Good full medium red. Riveting high-pitched perfume of raspberry, blood orange and violet, lifted by hints of lemon and talc. Clean, focused, and well delineated, with strong minerality and fresh spices lifting the raspberry fruit and very floral flavors. Easygoing and very drinkable already, this expresses a very silky texture. Finishes vibrant and very long, with subtle perfume of strawberry and violet. A pretty wine." Vinous

      "Vivid red. Fresh spice-and floral-accented aromas of strawberry and cola, with a flinty topnote.

      Nerobafaleffj is a very unusual wine for Sicily. It offers an aromatic intensity not found anywhere else in southern Italy. The bouquet is explosive with strong cherries, dried blackberries, tobacco and spices. Subtle echoes of cinnamon and crushed carnation. An exotic red of high concentration and power with a wonderfully complex, long finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Fresh brambleberries, dried herbs, raspberries and spices. Medium body, bright acidity, medium-chewy tannins and a fruity finish. From organically grown grapes." James Suckling

      "A pure expression of Nero d'Avola, the 2013 Sicilia Nerobufaleffj (with only 3,600 bottles produced) is a thickly textured and dark red wine with ripe fruit aromas that segue to tar, road paving, spice and black licorice. Now that we are five years after the harvest, the wine is also showing slightly aged notes of sweet barbecue smoke and crushed granite rock. Black olive and Sicilian caper also make subtle aromatic appearances. The Bufaleffi vineyard site shows a unique array of colored soils with black clay, white limestone rock and red sand."

      "Deep ruby-red. Refined, highly complex aromas of blueberry, flint, exotic spices, faded flowers, cumin and cardamom.

Rises impressively on the perfumed, elegant back end, which features smooth fine-grained tannins, a restrained sweetness and a lingering flinty nuance.

      Dark colour, beautiful bouquet of Mediterranean herbs and balsamic notes, ripe, fruity morello cherry, rich in silky tannins, the magnificent Nero d'Avola site wine Neromaccarj. SUPERIORE.DE

      "From a low-altitude, sea-facing vineyard site, the 2016 NeroMàccarj shows the ripe and succulent side of Nero d'Avola. The wine opens to an inky dark appearance with aromas that are thick and broad, creating a tall wall of plummy black fruit. The wine is very immediate and impactful, and you don't need to do too much digging before you recognize all those broad-brush aromas on the bouquet. That bitterness that you sometimes get in the NeroSanloré does not appear here. Some 6,500 bottles were released." Robert Parker

    About the winemakers
    Gulfi
    Sicily
    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
