Feudo Montoni has been producing top-quality wines on its historic grounds since 1469, and is currently overseen by Fabio Sireci, the third generation of a family dedicated to producing the most refined expressions of this long-cultivated terroir.
Ian D’Agata recently raved about the estate saying, ” The reds are outstanding, and the Nero d’Avola Selezione Vrucara (along with one or two of the crus) is simply the country’s best Nero d’Avola wine. ”
The 2020 Nero “Lagnusa” is particularly memorable and one of the most ideal introductions to the category possible. It earned 92 points from Vinous who called it “remarkably fresh yet long, leaving the mouth watering while still resonating on hints of blackberry.” As a pizza or Thanksgiving wine, you can’t do any better. For a Nero d’Avola, there is no better producer in the world than Fuedo Montoni. This is the one you want. Again, it’s not just me saying this – us wine people all agree!
92 Points, Vinous Media
In a cloud of crushed violet candies, sugar-dusted currants and hints of sage evolve, making the 2020 Nero d’Avola Lagnusa a total aromatic pleasure. Soft-textured and round, this impresses further with ripe red and blue-toned fruits, complemented by sweet spice over a core of vibrant acidity. The Lagnusa finishes remarkably fresh yet long, leaving the mouth watering while still resonating on hints of blackberry and a bitter twang of sour citrus.
91 Points, Wine Spectator
Delivers wild strawberry, raspberry and red licorice notes that are expressive and juicy, with tea rose, thyme and tar notes and bright orange peel acidity. Long and creamy on the palate, with fine, chalky tannins.
