"From the Tenuta Presti e Pegni, the 2016 Sicilia Noà is a blend of Sicilian and Bordeaux grapes. The exact composition is 40% Nero d'Avola, 30% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon. Each grape is aged in oak for 12 months; however, the Sicilian grape goes into botte grande and the two French grapes go into barrique. This wine pours from the bottle with an inky black appearance and an intense concentration of aromas and flavors. The Cusumano brothers have hit the bull's-eye with this beautiful wine in terms of its power, complexity and smooth integration. The bouquet starts off with Morello cherry, dried blackberry, spice and bitter chocolate. As the wine opens in the glass, it unleashes granite, smoke and licorice. As far as Cusumano's Noà goes, this is the nicest vintage I have tasted thus far. Drink date: 2019-2029. Score - 94. (Monica Larner, robertparker.com, Oct. 17, 2019)"
