Reviews and Ratings

James Belardo rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Okay, so it's no secret that I've become obsessed with wine crafted with the Sicilian indigenous grape Nero D'Avola. Historically, it's one of the oldest grape varieties and was often overlooked as a local table wine. What has happened over the past few years is an awakening of sorts. The southern regions of Italy had taken a backseat to the more industrious regions to the north due to mainly political reasons but has been experiencing a come back.

In my opinion, the Centuno Canicatti is outstanding example of a Nero D'Avola wine. They've crafted this dark-skinned grape and presented all it's suppleness in a well balanced and flavorful wine - BRAVO. Now, my issue is finding stock in stores as it keeps selling out.

Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Lovely, aromatic red featuring purple plums, black cherry, black raspberry wrapped around a truly grapey core. Pairs well with braised meats and tomato-based pasta dishes. 91 Points. (ottawawinejournal.com)

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
