Critic Notes

From Cusumano's Tenuta San Giacomo property, the 2012 Sicilia Sagana is a pure expression of Nero d'Avola that opens to a dark appearance and concentrated color. The wine is masculine and dense with thick layers of cherry, blackberry preserves, spice, leather and tobacco. The fruit has reached an optimal level of ripeness and those greenish or herbal notes you sometimes get from Nero d'Avola are completely absent. This gives the wine a classic style and approachable appeal. Starting with the 2012 vintage, Sagana is a Sicilia DOC wine. Dec 2015, www.robertparker.com

Top Burgundy Negociants on the 2018 Vintage
ALAIN SERVEAU (HEAD WINEMAKER AT ALBERT BICHOT) After a number of challenging conditions in previous vintages, Alain was happy to report that the “2018 vintage offered close to perfect conditions.  With such conditions, the challenge was to keep the “charge” in the wines and to avoid reaching high yields in order to maintain concentrations.” This required necessary “de-budding” during springtime, ...
