2019 Feudo Montoni Lagnusa Nero d’Avola
Sorry, currently out of stock
Lagnusa means lazy, which makes reference to the very low yielding Nero vines of this vineyard. Of course this may sound like a negative but is actually very much a positive. The low yielding vines produce fruit with more concentration and depth of flavour. The fruit is fermented again in temperature controlled vats and then aged for 20 months before a further 4 months of ageing in barrel before bottling. This beautiful Nero is elegant and aromatic with fine tannins.
Sweet violets and rose come together with crushed blackberries and a spritz of tangerine to form an inviting bouquet as the 2019 Nero d'Avola Lagnusa opens in the glass. It’s silky-smooth and round, the ripe black fruits and confectionary spices creating a seductive display. Brisk acids and minerals build tension through the finale, making pleasant punctuation to such an extroverted yet balanced expression. - Eric Guido, Vinous.
