Feudo Montoni, Nero d Avola, Lagnusa 2015 (750ml)

Feudo Montoni is one of Sicily’s most historical producers of Nero d’Avola, the estate dates back to the XVI century, when the prized ‘Vrucara’ single-vineyard was first planted in the Contea di Sclafani area (650 mt asl), and the resulting wines immediately prized by Andrea Bacci (the Vatican’s court official  sommelier) in his ‘De Naturali Vinorum Historia’.

Lagnusa is the name of the cru from which the grapes hail. The name has its origins in the vineyard which has always been called “lagnusa” by the farmers of Montoni. In Sicilian, “lagnusa” means that which is lazy and produces small quantities. Today, we know that a vineyard that produces less, creates higher quality.
