Winemaker Notes

Red wine made from Sicilian Nero d'Avola grapes which are used with a small quantity of Merlot, overripened in the hot Sicilian sun. After a period of fermentation, it develops in wood that rounds out its noble tannins while preserving the original fragrance and the primary bouquet. A "supple" wine, rich and balanced, that has a long life.

"With a superstar winemaker like Riccardo Cotarella, how could you go wrong? This blend of 80% Nero d'Avola and 20% Merlot is tasty. The Merlot is picked late for additional ripeness, which brings juicy blackberry richness to the wine. Flavors of spice, cinnamon and earth are smooth yet full in the mouth. This is a great red to start off with in an Italian restaurant. By itself, or with a pizza or pasta, you can't beat it."

Santa Anastasia Winery Image
Along Sicily’s northern coastline, between the sea and the Apennine range of Madonie, the medieval abbey or "abbazia" of Santa Anastasia is steeped in a natural landscape so extraordinary that the present owner, entrepreneur Francesco Lena, decided to transform these 988 acres of farmland, olive groves, vineyards and medieval buildings into a model, ultramodern winery and an exclusive relais, where visitors would be able to enjoy the unique, sultry beauty of Sicily at its finest.

In the quarter of a century that has elapsed since Lena purchased the vast property (1980), an extraordinary team of agronomists and wine technicians, orchestrated by Lena himself with winemaker Riccardo Cotarella, has succeeded in crafting some of the new icons of Sicilian oenology from elevated, Guyot-trained vines and superb terroir.
