Brand Firriato
Deep intense ruby red color with lively shades of purple. It affords concentrated, well-defined nuances of marasca cherries, wild berries, rhubarb, cloves, aromatic herbs and prunes that alternate and blend with charming hints of liquorice, ink and tobacco leaves. Suave, soft and caressing, it reveals its great and intensely Mediterranean character admirably blending a powerful and hearty texture, an extraordinary vivacity, silky and fine tannins. It is a wine that has made the history of modern Sicilian wine-making; it is very appreciated by international markets; complex with a superior character; an incredibly pleasant drinking experience with an almost fleshy fruit; a star in its category.

Two very complementary grapes, Nero d'Avola and Syrah, are blended to make the 2014 Baglio Sorìa Santagostino. This vintage shows a level of balance that I did not find in the previous edition (that felt too weighted down by oak in my opinion). In fact, this wine opens a much wider window onto aromas of black cherry, plum, spice, tar and leather. I get a good sense of the Syrah, thanks to the richly textured nature of the mouthfeel with the dark berry flavors of the Sicilian grape. This vintage of Baglio Sorìa Santagostino puts this wine enthusiastically back in play.
