It boasts enormous honeyed notes as well as underlying mineral characteristics in the sweet, rich, buttery pineapple and caramel aromas and flavors. Acininobili's intensity, richness, and overall refreshing personality.
There are a whopping 100,000 bottles of the delicious, light-bodied, super-aromatic 1999 Pino Toi (a blend of Pinot Blanc, Pinot Grigio, Tocai, and Chardonnay). It provides an excellent lesson in the balance between ripe, delicately nuanced fruit, light body, and zesty acidity. While this seems like an easy combination to achieve, too often these efforts are bland, diluted, or excessively acidified. This is a terrific, delicious, dry white that would go beautifully with fried calamari ... or for that matter, fried anything.
The 1998 is an outstanding success, with elegance allied to power and intensity. Montevetrano's hallmark blackberry and black raspberry component is present as well as beautiful purity/symmetry, and a long, medium to full-bodied, highly-concentrated finish.
Boasts a gorgeous nose of blueberry and raspberry jam intermixed with smoke, licorice, and minerals. There is an impressive fruit intensity as well as an undeniable elegance and overall symmetry/balance.

Nero d'Avola Sicilia IGT
The 1998 Nero d'Avola reveals a Burgundian-like softness in addition to plenty of spicy, sour cherry notes in its elegant bouquet, medium body, and round, attractive, subtle flavors.
