An excellent year for the Nero d'Avola and Cabernet Sauvignon destined for this Tancredi, in respective proportions of 70% and 30%. Matured for 14 months in oak and refined for over a year in the bottle. An expression of great elegance and balance. The wood is perfectly integrated, the tannins are "gentle", well-balanced, complex and never intrusive. A memorably harmonious Tancredi 2006.
"Tancredi is always a beautiful wine and this year's expression (a 70-30 blend of Nero d'Avola and Cabernet Sauvignon) offers great aromatic intensity with soft tones of cherry, vanilla and exoitic spice. It closes with good structure and polished tannins."

Sicily was at one time more quantity focused than quality, and while it's still producing a great deal of wine, the quality coming out is much better. With poor soil (great for grapes), warm sunshine, little...Read More About Sicily
