Natalie's Score: 90/100

A full-bodied southern-Italian Nero d'Avola and Syrah red wine blend, lush with sensuous ripe dark cherry, plum smooth on the palate with a lingering dark chocolate and orange citrus finish. Tannins are smooth and velvety. Pair with a sautéed pork tenderloin in a rich wild mushroom sauce.

Nero d'Avola Syrah food pairings: mushroom risotto, duck confit, fricassee rabbit.

Reviews and Ratings

Jenny Ratcliffe-Wright CWM rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

A lovely red blend from Sicily showing black pepper and brambly fruit. Blackberry crumble on the palate with plums and sweet cherries. Finishes with soft round tannins. Try with a simple slow cooked brisket @wrightwineblog
Firriato Santagostino Baglio Sorìa 2013 is a robust and juicy red wine blend of Nero D'avola and Syrah from the Sicily wine region. Full-bodied and smooth with concentrated cherry, ripe red plum, dark chocolate and smoky flavours on the palate. Great value under $20. Pair with grilled pork chops. This IGT wine's label is emblazoned with the Rose Window, a precious gothic jewel that stands out on the facade of the Santagostino Monastery in Trapani. The monastery was given by King Federico III of Aragona in the fourteenth century to the Augustinian fathers who were then masters of fine winemaking. The red colour represents a true and renewed synthesis of their doctrine. - Community Wine Reviews
