"Sweet and sour-cherry with walnut and toasted-oak aromas that follow through to a full body with juicy fruit and chewy tannin on the palate. Savory. Smoky meat at the end with lovely fruit. Drink now or hold."
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"Here is another pure expression of Nero d'Avola that aspires to bring us the most sophisticated and nuanced approach to a grape that is too often relegated to basic workhorse functions that are far below its potential. Wines like this have successfully carved out a space for high-end Sicilian reds in retailers across the world. The Feudo Maccari 2018 Sicilia Saia is proud and generous, with thick layers of dark fruit folded into soft oak and spice."
Wine & Spirits Magazine
"Saia hails from Noto, Sicily’s southeastern tip, where low-lying, alberello-trained vines bask in the heat and wind, yielding a wine with concentrated flavors of dark plum, black olive and dried herbs framed by leathery tannins. It’s a robust and savory rendering of nero d’Avola, those intense flavors balanced by lively acidity and bright salinity."
