SHIPPING NOW

In a few years, you are going to look back and say, "I remember when this wine was only 16 bucks!"

At 600 feet above sea level, this stunning Sicilian red is elegant and refined - not jammy like many of the lowland Nero d'Avolas made today. And, the topography of the vineyards is a virtual sanctuary surround by miles of wheat fields preserving the integrity of these organic vines. In fact, many producers in the region have asked for cuttings for their own vineyards!

We love this wine and can’t get enough! It is versatile and loaded with flavor. It is perfect for Tuesday nights with a wedge of hard cheese or grab it and go with confidence to your favorite Saturday BYOB. If you missed our more collectible Passorosso Sicilian offering a few weeks ago, don't miss this beautiful, everyday Sicilian red, which you should by buy the case.

Complex aromas of fruit and spices are in harmony with an intoxicating hint of cinnamon on the backend - perfect for this time of year. This impeccable Sicilian red has notes of menthol and fresh dark cherry on the palate. Strawberry, fig and dried plum are balanced by a dash of spice. No oak, this wine is pure and delicious!

Pair with wild boar ragu, fire-grilled pizza with smoked mozzarella, eggplant caponata, or simply dip with your favorite olive oil and crusty bread combination. Did we mention you should buy this by the case?!

Summary


ANTONIO GALLONI
92 / 100

Bright ruby-red with a purple tinge. Explosively floral and fruity nose offers violet, plums, black cherry and minerals. Bright and juicy but dense, with piercing flavors of dark fruit and sweet spices. Long and very perfumed on the vibrant finish.

MERCHANT'S MARK

The structure of Feudo Montoni's Nero d'Avola does not conquer with strength, but with elegance. Complex aromas of fruit and spices are in harmony with one another with an intoxicating hint of cinnamon on the backend - perfect for this time of year. Strawberry, fig and dried plum are balanced by a dash of spice and menthol. No oak, this wine is pure and delicious! It is velvety and laced with just the right amount of tannin. We were incredibly impressed with this Sicilian stunner that can take you from Saturday night dinners are your favorite BYOB to Tuesday night's with just a wedge of cheese. 

WINE ADVOCATE
91+ / 100

Here is a fabulous value wine from a great vintage. The 2014 Sicilia Nero d'Avola Vigna Lagnusa is a rich and penetrating wine with a full load of primary fruit. The wine flaunts its youth and its freshness with vibrant notes of blackberry, plum, black currant, simple spice and toasted almond. What I love about this gorgeous Nero d'Avola is that it delivers varietal intensity and purity. It is never weighed down by those burnt pistachio aromas you sometimes get with the grape from less fortunate sites. Instead, this property with clay limestone soils on a high plain near the center of the island offers uniform growing conditions for consistent and very fruit-forward wines...
