Bottle size and vintage
Lagnusa is the name of the cru from which the grapes come. The name originates from a vineyard whose land has always been called by the local farmers "Lagnusa", in Sicilian, "lazy", which produces little, therefore qualitatively brought to excellence. A vineyard of over thirty years that gives a ruby red wine, with a complex aroma with fruity and spicy notes in harmony with each other. Cinnamon stands out. The taste, elegant rather than powerful, mentholated notes amplify the freshness of the wine. Soft, enveloping, sapid, rightly tannic on the palate. Ideal to accompany courses of red meat, such as roasts, braised meats and game.
- Optimum serving temperature:Between 16ºC and 18ºC
Delicious and authentic
Delicious and authentic Nero d'Avola from relatively high altitude which avoids the tendency to jamminess often found in other examples of the grape.by: karelfd (30/08/2019)
Far beyond a run of the mill Nero d'Avola
Brilliant red, not too dark. Impressingly complex nose, especially keeping its price range in mind: cherries, bramble, milk chocolate, blood orange peel, cinnamon, laurel and a whiff of blonde tobacco. Full, yet elegant and silky mouthfeel; this is lightyears away from the thin, acid Neri one comes across all too often. I suspect this wine is made from fairly old, sparsely yielding vines. Brilliant effort, a killer at this price that has me longing to taste Montoni's prephylloxera Vrucara. Be aware, however, the wine already tastes mature, so I wouldn't keep this for a very long time. For the same reason, make sure not to drink this too warm as it will risk to become tired and diffuse instead of vibrant, elegant and complex. Bravo!by: Graham Ford (03/07/2018)
Ok for the price
A slight back taste, which although not unpleasant would probably prevent me buying it again. Maybe a younger age would be better?by: Zoltán Németi (01/05/2018)
Lacks varietal and regional character, smells undistinguished, like many other low intervention, dirty wine. It's a shame, because the palate is quite classically shaped (classic Old World), without a hint of over-ripeness.by: Marcin (22/11/2017)
One of the best italian wines .Worth spending extra money. Worth to keep it for few years to try matured taste.
The magical courtyard from 1469 which is the heart of Fabio Sireci's passion, Feudo Montoni, between Agrigento, Palermo and Caltanissetta, is today one of the cornerstones of Sicilian wine and of the Nero d'Avola in particular. The vineyards, which reach 800 metres altitude, are grown biologically and are rich in spontaneous vegetation that feeds the ecosystem. The fragrant and soft Lagnusa, an engaging and rustic Nero d'Avola, the imperious and solemn Vrucara, the top Nero d...
