“Straw-gold. Stone fruits, fresh herbs and a hint of licorice on the nose. Juicy, minty and fresh in the mouth, with flavors of underripe apricot, Golden Delicious apple and minerals. Finishes lean and bright, with lemon and delicate herbal notes lingering nicely. A straightforward wine that will go marvelously well with shellfish, this is a simple, extremely well made and satisfying bottle for the money.” – Ian d’Agata

“Bright medium yellow-gold. Pungent muscaty aromas of pink grapefruit, orange blossom, rose petal and minty cinnamon, lifted by jasmine. In the mouth, the fruit-driven flavors of green papaya and grapefruit are a little less intense than some past vintages of this wine. Finishes smooth and round, with a lingering lavender nuance. For the money, this is always one of Italy’s top dry aromatic whites, and usually a 90-pointer. This ’09 misses out on an outstanding score only because it could use a little more verve and crispness, but I’m probably splitting hairs.” – Ian d’Agata

“Dark violet-red. Spicy raspberry, cassis, plum and floral aromas display very good vibrancy and precision. In the mouth, firmer red cherry and redcurrant flavors are subtly accented by dried herbs and baking spices, with lively acidity enhancing the bright, juicy mouthfeel. A vibrant, fragrant red that is as close to a sure bet as there is in Italian wine today and always one of Italy’s best wine buys. It deserves 90 points on its yummy factor alone, but this vintage has a little less complexity and depth than usual for me.” Ian d’Agata

“Vivid amber-tinged golden- yellow. Piercingly intense aromas of dried apricot, candied peach, rose petal and grapefruit are complicated by hints of raisin and date on the captivating nose. Then juicy and fresh in the mouth, with concentrated flavors of ripe citrus, sweet spices and white flowers. This has huge fruit but doesn’t come across as heavy or cloying thanks to wonderfully harmonious acids. An essence of air-dried muscat of Alexandria. I would have scored this pure, mesmerizingly intense wine even higher but for some oaky dryness that emerged as the wine opened in the glass. By far the best wine made at Donnafugata. (Folio Fine Wine Partners, Napa, CA).” Ian d’Agata

“One of the best wines made on the beautiful island of Sicily, Donnafugata’s Mille e Una Notte exhibits gorgeous smoothness in the mouth and exceedingly rich aromas of black currants, chocolate, spice and tobacco. Under all that are notes of toasted almond and pistachio that are characteristic of the Nero d’Avola grape. Imported by Folio Fine Wine Partners. ” Monica Larner
