An EWM Best Seller!
An EWM favorite and best seller!

2,000 bottles and counting!

In two short years, Feudo Montoni has become our best selling and fastest selling Italian red.  

We said it before and we'll say it again: In a few years, you are going to look back and say, "I remember when this wine was under 20 bucks!"  So, enjoy this sub-$20 red while it lasts! 

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.

The topography of the vineyards is a virtual sanctuary surround by miles of wheat fields preserving the integrity of these organic vines. Many producers in the region have asked the winery for cuttings to use in their own vineyards!

We love this wine and can’t get enough! 

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!

Versatile and loaded with flavor, Feudo Montoni is perfect for Tuesday nights with a wedge of hard cheese or grab it and go with confidence to your favorite Saturday BYOB. 

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.

This is a case purchase without hesitation.

Enjoy!

$18.95 per bottle / $227.40 per case

Summary


MERCHANT'S MARK

93 / 100

As with the prior vintage, the 2017 Feudo Montoni Nero d'Avola does not conquer with strength, but with elegance. Complex aromas of fruit and spices are in harmony with an intoxicating hint of cinnamon on the backend. 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! 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 to your favorite BYOB to Tuesday night's with just a wedge of cheese.
