Feudo Montoni Vrucara Nero d'Avola 2017 is a remarkable red wine that reflects the Sicilian terroir and the meticulous winemaking of Feudo Montoni. Pouring into the glass, it exhibits a deep and intense ruby-red color, signaling its concentration and complexity.

The aromas hint at the wine's depth and the unique characteristics derived from the Vrucara vineyard.

On the palate, the Vrucara Nero d'Avola unfolds a rich and full-bodied experience. The dark fruit flavors persist, intertwined with nuances of licorice, tobacco, and a hint of balsamic. Firm yet velvety tannins provide structure, while a vibrant acidity adds liveliness to the wine.

Critic Ratings

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Review - Rated 94:
Tasted from magnum, the Feudo Montoni 2017 Sicilia Nero d'Avola Vrucara is a certified organic expression of Sicily’s vinous protagonist, Nero d'Avola, from a single vineyard planted to ancient pre-phylloxera vines. The fruit is dark and shows medium concentration, pointing to the hot and dry conditions of this growing season. But this native grape thrives in hot weather, allowing for plenty of aromatic expression and depth. Black cherry opens the bouquet, but it follows softly to toasted nut, sweet potting soil and cured tobacco. Ultimately, this is more of a mid-weight wine than it is an all-out, full-bodied expression. This lighter approach gives this red an extra layer of elegance and grace, with some fruity sweetness on the close.

Wine Enthusiast Review - Rated 93:
Elegantly structured, this opens with enticing scents of ripe dark-skinned fruit, blue flower, Mediterranean brush and whiffs of sun-baked earth. Made with organically farmed grapes, the smooth, delicious palate offers juicy black cherry, blackberry, carob and baking spice alongside polished tannins.
