Natalie's Score: 92/100

Exceptional value and quality in this southern Italian red wine for the price! This full-bodied Sicilian red is smooth with mocha richness and brooding black plums slipping in underneath. Dark spice and smoke on a long finish. Terrific structure and balance. Demands hearty meat dishes and your full commitment. This wine is a blend of 40% Nero d'Avola, 30% Merlot, and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. Nero d'Avola is the flagship red wine of Sicily: try it tonight with hamburgers. There were 175 cases of this wine produced for this vintage.

Food pairings: hamburgers.

Reviews and Ratings

The 2011 vintage of this robust Italian red wine, Noa Tenuta Presti e Pegni, is a blend of 40% Nero d'Avola, 30% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. The wine was aged for 1 year in oak barrels. The grapes are sourced from the 70-hectare Tenuta di Presti e Pegni estate vineyard, which is nestled in the Alcamo and Monreale region of western Sicily and planted in clay soils at 250 metres above sea level. - Community Wine Reviews

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.

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.
