Super Tuscan style, double Gold medal, 93 point red from Sicily, combining cherry scented Sangiovese with Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Merlot, all aged in barrel. With the ripeness you’d expect from Australia yet with trademark Italian elegance too.
"Sicily at its best. An excellent, rich red. Liked the hints of minerals coming through the berries"
Online Review For the 2016 vintage
One of Italy’s top wine consultants, Mario Ercolino is the man behind this exciting ‘Super Sicilian’ red. The grapes are from two small estates in western Sicily – Cabernet and Merlot from Menfi, where deep, mineral rich soils impart complexity to each variety – the Syrah and Sangiovese from Sciacca. The latter two are grown in neighbouring vineyards overlooking the sea, where they achieve excellent ripeness. Mario matures a little of each in small American oak barrels for six months then sets to work blending the four – tasting and re-tasting until the wine is just right. Saserello is a wonderfully rich, complex and elegant red with plenty of upfront fruit and a long finish. Enjoy with a roast, or a spicy bean and chorizo casserole.
