Feudi Montoni a Sicilian Super Star
We have been working with the Feudi Montoni Grillo Timpa and Nero D'Avola Lagnusa for a few months now. Recently we reached out to our the importer and grabbed a handful of cases of their lovely 2019 Rose and stunning 2015 Nero D'Avola Vrucara.
2019 Feudi Montoni Rosato Nero Mascalese...$19.99
The 2019 Rosé di Adele from Feudo Montoni lifts from the glass with a pretty yet understated bouquet, showing sweet florals with hints of mint leaf, ripe apple, and gingery spice. On the palate, soft textures are offset by zesty acids and saline-minerals, as its fruit leans more toward ripe melon and sweet herbs. The finish is medium in length, yet mouthwatering and just begging me to take another sip. This is yet another Nerello Mascalese Rosato that’s truly worth the hunt.
Rated 90/100 Vinous
2019 Feudi Montoni Grillo Timpa....$19.99
Luminous straw yellow. Delicate aromas of lemon, lime, sage and minty herbs. With aeration a note of Moscato Bianco-like orange blossom, grapefruit and sweet spices emerge. Fresh and juicy, with very good vibrancy to the flavors of fresh citrus fruits and minty herbs. The finish is long and juicy, offering a hint of powdered rocks on the tail end.
Rated 92/100 Vinous
2017 Feudi Montoni Nero D'Avola Lagnusa...$18.99
Made with organically farmed fruit, the 2017 Sicilia Nero d'Avola Lagnusa is a terrific entry-level wine from sunny Sicilia. You get a lot of authentic charm here with variety-driven tones of black fruit, scorched earth and chopped olive. Those aromas find nice harmony while also showing charming intensity.

2015 Feudi Montoni Nero D'Avola Vrucara...$53.99
Tasted from magnum, the 2015 Sicilia Nero d'Avola Vrucara is a dark and penetrating wine with a chiseled and pungent side that delivers dried cherry and blackberry preserves. There is a point of ripeness, maybe even jammy cherry with lots of inky dark fruit. This remains one of the benchmark bottles for Sicily's banner grape Nero d'Avola.
