Santagostino Nero D’Avola Syrah 2011

santagostino 2011 con piedino awardsSantagostino Nero D’Avola Syrah 2011 $30 ★★★★

The groovy, gothic-style circular design on the label comes from the façade of the 14th century Sicilian Santagostino Monastry in Trapani, so yes, the bottle looks good, but it tastes like money too. Liquorice, raspberry, dusty rose and pepper aromatics merge with rosehip and pomegranate flavours, fresh acidity, boldly chewy tannins and impressively lengthy persistence of flavour.
