Morgante’s Don Antonio is a wine that faithfully mirrors the growing success of Sicily. It’s been around long enough to provide a model for younger vintners and it’s quality remains excellent, thanks to a dense, inky texture and bright aromas of dark cherry and toasted almond.
Black raspberry and sweet cinnamon-toast aromas lure you into the glass. The alcohol is 14%, but the intense dark fruit and substantial tannins give it balance. Delicious now but will age well for a number of years.
A young wine that showed very well thanks to its bursting ripe fruit, crushed black pepper, and toasty nuttiness. The tannins are lusciously soft and the wine’s medium body make it an excellent drink-now proposition. Imported by Winebow.
Hats off to Don Antonio and this tight, ripe and concentrated red that ages 12 months in oak. Leather, prunes, cherry, charcoal and wet earth shape a bold, blockbuster Sicilian red; wood tones add texture and richness in the mouth where the wine caresses with its silky tannins. Drink now.

Morgante is an excellent Sicilian estate that has shown consistency in quality throughout the years. This fruit-filled Nero d’Avola would pair well with veal encrusted with chopped pistachio or pork marinated in garlic and rosemary. Aromas here include wild fruit, cassis and black currant.
