Full golden-tinged straw color. Spicy aromas of yellow plum, grapefruit, honey, ginger, and jasmine. Bright and juicy, with bright acids really providing the musky tropical fruit, floral and spice flavors outstanding clarity and cut. The floral and ginger elements linger long on the clean, suave aftertaste. This Kabir is one of the best in memory; I find it’s almost always Donnafugata’s most underrated wine. Ian D’Agata

Bright yellow-gold color. Pungent, tangy aromas of orange peel, grapefruit, ... Leggi tutto

Bright yellow-gold color. Pungent, tangy aromas of orange peel, grapefruit, lime blossom, apricot and sweet spices on the mesmerizingly pure nose. Juicy, intense and penetrating, with razor-sharp acidity lifting and focusing the thick, concentrated grapefruit, honeyed peach, orange peel, cinnamon and ginger flavors. This shows a near-perfect sugar/acid balance, and comes across as light on its feet for such a rich, concentrated wine. The slowly building, palate-staining finish goes on and on, with repeating floral and honey notes. This is always Donnafugata’s best wine, and this vintage is one of their best ever. Readers should be aware that moscato di Alessandria is usually called zibibbo in Italy (which is also its official name, by the way). Ian D’Agata

Saturated ruby. Very dark aromas of black fruits, violet, graphite and bitter chocolate, plus sexy vanillin oak. Large-scaled and thick but suave, boasting outstanding depth and precision to its black fruit, cedar and herb flavors. Finishes with mouthcoating tannins and outrageous sweetness and size, but manages to maintain impressive verve. The best Mille e Una Notte in years, and one that reminds me of nero d’Avola, not cabernet sauvignon. Extremely well done.
