Donnafugata Mille e Una Notte 750ML 2008

A structured red wine with a remarkable personality. Complex and elegant offers on the nose a rich bouquet with balsamic scents, floral notes and spicy nuances.

Seared mushroom and ground anise notes accent the flavors of dried currant, plum sauce and mocha in this well-balanced, chewy red. The anise hint echoes on the refined finish. Nero d’Avola. Drink now through 2019. 350 cases imported.-AN

Saturated ruby. Very dark aromas of black fruits, violet, graphite and bitter chocolate, plus sexy vanillin oak. Large-scaled and thick but suave, boasting outstanding depth and precision to its black fruit, cedar and herb flavors. Finishes with mouthcoating tannins and outrageous sweetness and size, but manages to maintain impressive verve. The best Mille e Una Notte in years, and one that reminds me of nero d’Avola, not cabernet sauvignon. Extremely well done.

The 2008 Contessa Entellina Rosso Mille e una Notte stands out immediately in a blind tasting, thanks to the wine’s instantly recognizable pedigree. Crafted in a seamless manner, this mostly Nero d’Avola based wine is inky dark and beautifully concentrated with thick layers of blackberry, barbecue spice and a defining note of eucalyptus oil (that seems stronger in this vintage). This is a soft and penetrating effort with long, polished tannins, impressive richness and persistency. Donnafugata doesn’t reveal what other grapes may be present in the blend, but given the strong Bordeaux influences at the winery, there could be grapes associated with that part of France. In the style of the great super Tuscan wines, Mille e una Notte is a true “super Sicilian.” Drink 2015-2025.

Food pairing
Structured and gentle perfectly matches with rich dishes of red meats and game. We suggest you to taste it with very aged cheeses and chili-pepper flavored chocolate.
