"A gorgeous red with mineral, dried berry and tea leaf aromas and flavors. Hints of wood. Full body, chewy tannins and fresh and lively finish. A blend of cabernet sauvignon and nero d'avola. Drink now."
92 Monica Larner - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The 2011 Tancredi is made of Cabernet Sauvignon, Nero d'Avola, Tannat and other red grapes (in the Sicilia IGT appellation). This is a huge wine with broad shoulders and a very opulent but forthcoming style. The bouquet offers jammy blackberry and cherry liqueur with spice, cola, licorice and Spanish cedar. Tancredi shows a spectacular level of intensity with power and muscle. This vintage delivers a powerful punch. The wine needs a few more months of bottle aging to loosen up. "
