2009 Gulfi Nerosanlore' Nero d'Avola Sicily
The NeroSanlorè ("San Lorenzo") vineyard is also in the same zone of Noto as Gulfi's NeroBaronj, but we found this wine to be more high-toned and Brunello-like, with notes of caramel, coffee, and dried red cherry.
The Wine Advocate found it "thickly layered with aromas of ripe fruit, blackberry compote, tobacco and loads of spice… the wine offers ample tertiary aromas of licorice, resin and tar. This is a very attractive red that offers the full force and sunshine of Sicily in your glass."
Three stars, by a country mile. If there are better wines than Gulfi's single-vineyards produced in the mezzogiorno, we would love to taste them.
Gulfi is a 100% organic estate in the sweltering, windblown, southeastern corner of Sicily, beautiful and historic, and dotted with palm trees and citrus orchards. Here in the Noto valley, very close to the Mediterranean, the Nero d'Avola grape is king. If there are any better examples of this cultivar, we would love to taste them.About Vini Gulfi
