Feudo Principi Di Butera
The Prince of Butera
Today’s Feudo Principi Di Butera 2011 Symposio is a stunningly delicious red blend that was crafted to highlight the unique terroir elements of the coastal Sicilian climate.
Very well balanced, with equal footing for juicy dark fruit and sweet earth, today’s wine has a lovely sea salt minerality that lingers throughout. These flavors are paired with nice structure and a lovely pop of acidity, making today’s wine a great pairing idea for a wide variety of dishes.
We couldn’t get enough of this 91 Point gem, and have a strong feeling you’ll feel the same way. Luckily, at only $22 a bottle, you can afford to stock up!
Deep, midnight scarlet at the heart of the glass, with a pretty ruby fringe.
Earthy and subtle on the nose, with red raspberry and dark cherry framed by mushroomy earth, subtle baking spices, black peppercorn, and a touch of black olive.
Terroir shines through, with fruity notes of blackberry, dark cherry, and raspberry laid overtop rustic earth, sweet tobacco leaf, clove, anise, black peppercorn, and a touch of sage.
This wine’s fantastic structure, paired with a bright acidity, make it an ideal food wine.
