This is the Sicilian estate of Antonio Moretti, owner of Tenuta Sette Ponti in Tuscany. Their vineyards are located in the viticulturally important Val di Noto, in three different areas characterized by different soils and microclimates. Vine age are 30-60 years old.

Saia is taken from the Arab word for the irrigation canals built centuries ago to collect rainwater. It is made with 100 percent Nero d’Avola.

"A more subtle Saia than in the past with freshly picked mulberries, elderberries, tobacco, cedar and resin. Full-bodied and very tight on the palate with polished tannins and a long finish. The combination of dark fruit and minerals is irresistible. Drink in 2020." 95 points- James Suckling (Oct. 2018)
