Inky-black. Cocoa, ripe plum and balsamic oils are coupled with smoky spices on the nose and in the mouth. Rich, ripe and suave on the long finish. I find this to be one of the most improved wines from Donnafugata; what used to often be harsh and gritty, is now smooth and suave. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Nero d’Avola and Syrah. (14% alcohol).

A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Tannat and Nero d’Avola, the 2012 Tancredi is one of Sicily’s most consistent red wines. It is soft and luscious with plenty of dark fruit and blackberry that is followed by black olive, caper and rosemary. There are balsam notes of cola and medicinal herb although they appear as distant accents. This edition is especially ripe and well concentrated. Tancredi is aged in oak for 14 months. (Monica Larner)

Good full ruby. Deep, reticent, almost austere aromas and flavors of spicy dark plum, currant leaf, underbrush, coffee and graphite. Multilayered and complex; polished tannins provide backbone to the rich fruit. This still-brooding wine finishes long, displaying outstanding inner-mouth perfume. Strikes me as by far the best, most polished young Tancredi in memory; this is a wine in which rustic notes of hot-climate Cabernet Sauvignon almost always used to dominate. An almost 50/50 blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Nero d’Avola, plus small amounts of Tannat and other grapes. Drinking window: 2018 – 2023. (Ian d’Agata)

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.
