“The estate’s 2006 Tancredi (Nero d’Avola, Cabernet Sauvignon) is powerful and tightly wound at this stage. With some coaxing, dark morello cherries emerge, followed by sweet scents of tobacco, dried roses, sage, spices and French oak. Firm tannins build on the powerful finish. Readers will need to be especially patient here, but all of the elements seem to be in place for this to develop nicely over the coming years. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2026. Cost: $40. This is a beautiful set of wines from Donnafugata, one of Sicily’s leading producers. Importer: Folio Fine Wine Partners, Napa, CA; tel. (707) 256-2700” – Antonio Galloni
