Winemaker Notes

Lamùri, or "love" in Sicilian dialect, is Tasca d'Almerita's most luscious, fruit-forward, and youthful Nero d'Avola. Made from 100% Nero d'Avola from 10-15 year old vines grown in sandy soils. The unique micro-climate provides Lamùri its pleasant freshness and elegance.

Intense ruby-red in color, Lamùri offers lush aromas of blackberry, mulberry and cherry. On the palate, this wine is incredibly rich, with velvety tannins and a refreshing acidity. Recommended with Mediterranean fare, such as pasta, roasted lamb and barbecued kebabs or ribs.

Critical Acclaim

RP 92
The Wine Advocate

The 2008 Nero d'Avola Lamuri is one of the finest wines I tasted this year under $25. It is also a bottling that has improved dramatically over the last few years as Tasca has really dialed into an approach that has begun to payoff big time. The Lamuri showcases some of the more elegant qualities Nero d'Avola is capable of expressing. There is a wonderful clarity to the suave, caressing red berries and flowers, while the tannins possess a level of silkiness that elevates this wine to another level. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2018.

Tasca d'Almerita
It was 1830 when brothers Lucio and Carmelo Mastrogiovanni Tasca bought the former stronghold of Regaleali, which lies on the borderline of the provinces of Palermo and Caltanissetta and in the heart of Sicily. Much has changed since then: the introduction of the use of espalier, the complete restructuring of the cellars, the use of finished barrels for ageing, and the complete renovation of the equipment park - today the most vanguard of Europe - only to mention a few innovations. However, what has never changed in the 180 years of the wineries history is the love of the land, the respect for a noble and ancient art: wine, and the cultivation of the grape in all of its phases. To practice viticulture for many generations means first of all to have clearly understood and interpreted the value and character of this magnificent material above that of the grape, Europe's fruit of life. It is with pride that the Tasca d'Almerita family carries the traditions of yesterday into the future. And it is with the spirit of innovation that the Tasca d'Almerita family faces the challenges of tomorrow already today.
