Donnafugata's Tancredi is one of Sicily's most popular red wines, and it's easy to see why. The 2016 Tancredi is rich and soft at the same time, with a very pleasing texture that caresses the palate with dark fruit, spice and plum. The wine is mostly a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Nero d'Avola, although some Tannat and other grapes are thrown in. It ages in oak for 14 months. This is a complete effort that boasts thick layering and volume. Some 89,000 bottles were made.

This opens with earthy aromas of dark-skinned berry, new leather, cedar and tilled soil. The savory palate delivers black plum, cassis, tobacco and licorice alongside fine-grained tannins. Enjoy through 2025.
