James Suckling – 94 points
Beautiful aromas of tile, spice, fresh Mediterranean herbs and oyster shell. Full body, firm and silky tannins and a polished and caressing finish. Lovely length and texture. One of the best ever from here. Drink now or hold.
Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate – 91 points
The 2015 Sicilia Saia is a dark, plump and exuberant expression of Sicily’s mighty Nero d’Avola grape. The wine offers a distinctive bouquet with dark cherry, wild fennel and toasted pistachio nut. This is a soft and nicely concentrated expression with a long delivery of ripe fruit to keep your attention. Drink this wine over the next 5 years.
Wine Spectator – 90 points
An elegant, medium-bodied red, with light, taut tannins providing fine tension for the well-knit flavors of black raspberry, mandarin orange peel, lavender and ground anise. A tang of saline-tinged minerality echoes on the fresh finish. Drink now through 2025.
