“The 2006 Mille e Una Notte boasts incredible concentration and richness in its super-ripe blueberries, blackberry jam, graphite, minerals, cassis and licorice. This is decidedly more voluptuous and opulent than the Tancredi, and the richness of the fruit helps to balance the tannins to a greater extent. Smoke, tar and new leather add complexity to the round, creamy finish. The exotic 2006 Mille e Una Notte is a terrific effort from Donnafugata. 2006 Mille e Una Notte is predominantly Nero d’Avola. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2026. This is a beautiful set of wines from Donnafugata, one of Sicily’s leading producers. Drink 2012 – 2026; Cost: $80. Importer: Folio Fine Wine Partners, Napa, CA; tel. (707) 256-2700.” – Antonio Galloni
