"The 2007 Nerojbleo bursts from the glass with super-ripe plums, black cherries, flowers and sweet spices. It possesses gorgeous inner perfume and a racy, supple personality. Blackberry jam and cassis linger on the expressive finish. This is the most extroverted and flashy of the Nero d'Avolas. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022.

Readers who want to understand what makes Nero d'Avola such a compelling grape should take a close look at these new releases from Gulfi. A house style is evident, but the five Nero d'Avolas are also strikingly different. The Reseca is the first wine I have tasted from the estate's vineyards on Mount Etna." (WA)

"Bright ruby-red. Ripe, pure blackberry and blueberry aromas are lifted by pungent minerality and fresh herbs. Dense and sweet but refined, with penetrating, sweet dark berry and mineral flavors saturating the palate. Smooth tannins and good underlying acidity give this wine beautiful lift and precision on the long, satisfying finish." (IWC)
