Critic Ratings

Wine & Spirits Review - Rated 92:
Fabio Sireci culls fruit for this wine from 35-year-old vines propagated from his ancient Vrucara plot. He ages it primarily in cement tanks, accentuating the aromas of pink petals, balsamic herbs and fresh raspberries. Those fresh red-berry and wild-herb flavors create a bold and buoyant expression of nero d’Avola that reflects Sireci’s wind-blown, high-elevation vineyards in central Sicily.

Wine Enthusiast Review - Rated 91:
Heady aromas of ripe black-skinned berry, blue flower and Mediterranean scrub are front and center on this smooth red. Made with organically grown grapes, it's delicious and accessible, featuring blackberry jam, ripe black cherry, star anise and baking spice alongside supple tannins. Fresh acidity keeps it balanced. Drink through 2026.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Review - Rated 91:
The organic Feudo Montoni 2019 Sicilia Nero d'Avola Lagnusa is named after the Sicilian word for "lazy" because of the low yields associated with this particular growing site with heavy clay soils. Smooth and silky, the wine gives us a very accurate portrayal of the grape, with plenty of ripe, dark and purple fruits followed by scorched earth, toasted almond and a hint of black olive. Nero d'Avola sometimes renders smoky tar or resin, and you can sense that here. Some 98,000 bottles were made. Enjoy this excellent value wine with a pulled-pork barbecue sandwich.
