95 Pts Monica Larner - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"The 2010 Mille e Una Notte is one of the best and certainly most age-worthy editions of this landmark wine ever made. Tasted five years after the harvest, this Nero d'Avola-based beauty is only at the beginning of what promises to be a long and slow evolution. Opulent but harmonious aromas of dried cherry, blackberry, spice, truffle and barbecue smoke lift from the bouquet. These notes come together in seamless fashion with lift, momentum and balanced intensity. The tannins still show youthful tightness and this bodes well for the future aging potential of this important Sicilian red."

94 Pts James Suckling - Jamessuckling.com

"A wine with lots of dried-berry and dark-berry aromas and flavors. Full body, chewy tannins and a berry, toasted-oak and bark aftertaste. A wine with richness and power. Top-class nero d'avola."

91+ Pts Ian Dagata - Vinous Media

"Fully saturated purple-ruby. Deep aromas and flavors of ripe blueberry, graphite, chocolate and vanilla. This brooding wine hints at considerable depth but is still tough as nails. Finishes with chewy tannins and an obvious saline slant, not to mention outstanding length and freshness. This is the first Mille e Una Notte in which 5% Petit Verdot was also added to the Syrah and the Nero d’Avola. The product of a cool, late-ripening year that produced low volume."


Description:

"An intense and enveloping bouquet, Mille e una Notte 2010 opens with notes of red fruit (plums and ripe cherries) enriched by fine spicy hints of black pepper and chocolate. The palate is ample, it perfectly reflects the nose, with soft and elegant tannins. A long and caressing persistence on the finish: a Mille e una Notte 2010 with great personality that brings immediate pleasure.

Mille e una Notte has represented since its first vintage, that of ’95, Donnafugata's most important red. Born from the dream of Giacomo and Gabriella, the founders of Donnafugata, to create a great Sicilian red, a noble version of Nero d'Avola. Giacomo Tachis, winery consultant, gave a decisive contribution to the definition of this wine. Over the years Mille e una Notte has established itself as an icon of great Sicilian red wines, flagship of the island's enological excellence.

Donnafugata has never stopped its experimentation in the vineyard and cellar, always searching for the best agronomic and enological expressions of its grapes and wines: in this vein some novelties have been included in the blend of Mille e una Notte, which in the 2010 vintage sees the introduction of Petit Verdot to the selection of the best Nero d’Avola and Syrah produced by the company.

Petit Verdot is a high quality variety, originally from the region of Bordeaux, present in Sicily since the ’90s. It is a late-ripening grape that has adapted perfectly to Sicily, where it can easily reach perfect technical and phenolic ripeness. In 2002 Donnafugata planted it in the terrains of Pandolfina (Sambuca di Sicilia): an area that is characterized by hilly silty clay soils, suited to enhance the characteristics of the Petit Verdot variety in the Mille e una Notte blend, enhancing the aromatic complexity, bringing elegant spicy scents, and giving the wine structure and longevity.

The Syrah destined for Mille e una Notte is the one produced in the Casale Bianco vineyards (Contessa Entellina), where the clay loam soils are characterized by an important calcareous component (35%) and give the wine great finesse and elegance.

The Nero d'Avola, selected from the one produced in the Mazzaporro vineyards (Contessa Entellina) that give rise to noble expressions of this variety, is characterized by great structure and aromatic intensity that expresses itself in fragrant fruity notes.

Mille e una Notte 2010 proposes complexity and elegance, confirming itself a witness to the Sicily that makes quality. " - Winery
