Noa Tenuta Presti e Pegni DOC Sicilia, Cusumano
Noa Tenuta Presti e Pegni DOC Sicilia, Cusumano
The first wine from the Cusumano Estate and the first wine to win Tre Bicchieri at Italy's prestigious Gambero Rosso competition with its very first vintage. Named after the biblical Noah, who legend has it was the first man to make wine, Noa is a big wine in every sense and arguably one of Sicily's greatest red wines. A red with firm and velvety tannins. Lots of blueberries, chocolate and hints of coffee beans. Full body, firm and silky tannins and a delicious finish.
