Saia, the name of the irrigation canals built centuries ago by the Arabs to collect rainwater, is made with 100 percent Nero d'Avola, an extraordinary grape able to produce intense, full bodied wine. The "alberello" cultivation and the aging in French oak make it a wine that stands alone in its category.
Bright, intense ruby red color, alternate sensations of mature fruit and sweet, elegant spicy notes. Explosive flavor and full body yet very fresh with lots of charisma.
"This has subtle aromas of blackberry, mineral and lavender. Full-bodied, with soft, silky tannins and a long, flavorful finish. A succulent red. All in the right place. A classy wine. Drink now. 4,420 cases made."
"Saia is one of a handful of icon wines from Sicily; It boasts excellent integration of oak and fruit (although the wood presence is defnitely felt) and amazing richness and intensity on the finish. the wine is dense, inviting and very long lasting."
