Wine AdvocateThe 2011 Tancredi is made of Cabernet Sauvignon, Nero d'Avola, Tannat and other red grapes (in the Sicilia IGT appellation). This is a huge wine with broad shoulders and a very opulent but forthcoming style. The bouquet offers jammy blackberry and cherry liqueur with spice, cola, licorice and Spanish cedar. Tancredi shows a spectacular level of intensity with power and muscle. This vintage delivers a powerful punch. The wine needs a few more months of bottle aging to loosen up.

Wine EnthusiastDark-skinned berry, underbrush, sun baked earth and light oak aromas unfold in the glass while the elegantly structured palate delivers ripe black cherry, licorice, leather and chopped herb. Fine-grained tannins give the finish a firm grip.
