The 2012 Contessa Entellina Chiarandà presents a thick and oaky style that does justice to the creamy Sicilian Chardonnay grapes used here. Chiarandà is endowed with a superior sense of richness that wraps thickly over the palate with intensity and determination. The bouquet reveals dried apricot, honey, peach, exotic fruit and toasted almond. Added complexity comes in the form of dried sage and toasted pine nut. This is a beautiful Sicilian wine that is built to last. It should continue its evolution over the next ten years.

The 2011 Mille e Una Notte is based on Nero d’Avola, although the wine sees smaller percentages of other grapes in supporting roles. This is a thick and darkly saturated expression with a bold flavor profile that reveals dark fruit, jammy blackberry, exotic spice and moist chewing tobacco. The 2011 vintage falls under the IGT Sicilia appellation (but newer vintages will be labeled under the Contessa Entellina appellation). The intensity of the bouquet is remarkable as is the thickness and weight of the wine’s texture. Mille e Una Notte is an all-Sicilian wine with an interesting Bordeaux slant. The tannins are firm but very well integrated.

The 2011 Tancredi is made of Cabernet Sauvignon, Nero d’Avola, Tannat and other red grapes (in the Sicilia IGT appellation). This is a huge wine with broad shoulders and a very opulent but forthcoming style. The bouquet offers jammy blackberry and cherry liqueur with spice, cola, licorice and Spanish cedar. Tancredi shows a spectacular level of intensity with power and muscle. This vintage delivers a powerful punch. The wine needs a few more months of bottle aging to loosen up.

The 2010 Mille e Una Notte is one of the best and certainly most age-worthy editions of this landmark wine ever made. Tasted five years after the harvest, this Nero d’Avola-based beauty is only at the beginning of what promises to be a long and slow evolution. Opulent but harmonious aromas of dried cherry, blackberry, spice, truffle and barbecue smoke lift from the bouquet. These notes come together in seamless fashion with lift, momentum and balanced intensity. The tannins still show youthful tightness and this bodes well for the future aging potential of this important Sicilian red.

The 2009 Mille e Una Notte is a gorgeous wine that shows its age with pride. A beautiful wine like this puts any doubt concerning the aging ability of Sicilian red wines to rest. Polished and carefully evolved notes of dried cherry, licorice, pressed rose petal, dark chocolate and coffee bean add momentum to the bouquet. The wine is mostly Nero d’Avola with smaller percentages of other red grapes thrown into the mix. Great care goes into making this wine and it shows. The large production numbers also mean that Mille e Una Notte is relatively easy to find at a wineshop near you.
