Mille e una Notte 2011 is characterized by an ample bouquet, with notes that range from red fruit (cherry) to spices (pepper and liquorice). The palate is fragrant, it perfectly reflects the nose, with soft and enveloping tannins. Long persistence on the finish: a wine with great personality and elegance. We suggest it with Slow-cooked rack of lamb, pappardelle with pork ragout, roasts, tournedos Rossini.

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Mille e Una Notte is mostly Nero d'Avola with some other red grapes in a supporting role. This was a terrific vintage in Sicily that did not see the below average temperatures and heavy rainfall that plagued the rest of mainland Italy. Instead, the growing season was characterized by balanced temperatures and steady sunshine. The fruit has matured beautifully here, showing blackberry, ripe cherry and plum. Tangy leather and spice add complexity to the wine. This is a full-bodied red with beautiful textual richness.

Wine EnthusiastUnderbrush, Mediterranean scrub, toast and exotic spice aromas leap from the glass. The concentrated, velvety palate doles out blackberry jam, ripe raspberry, vanilla and licorice, while tightly knit, fine-grained tannins provide structure.
