A luscious and rich red with currant and chocolate character. Medium to full body, round tannins and a juicy finish. So delicious. Drink or hold.

2011 Italy Sicily
91 Points

The 2011 Burdese represents a 70/30 blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc and the wine is dedicated to the many French influences that have shaped Sicilian viticulture over the centuries. This is a dark and impenetrable wine that is packed tight with brooding dark fruit and thick aromas of prune and plum. The wine flaunts a dense and richly extracted style. Evident aromas of tobacco, Spanish cedar, barbecue smoke and tar appear at the back.

Deep ruby. Very ripe aromas of dark berries, tomato confit and botanical herbs, with mocha and sweet herb nuances adding complexity. Lush, sweet and expansive, offering cassis and cherry-vanilla flavors nicely framed by smooth tannins. Very approachable already, but this wine's fruit-driven, almost syrupy-ripe personality may not appeal to those who prefer more classically styled Bordeaux blends.

Showing integrity, intensity and persistency, this opens with penetrating aromas of dark cherry, spice, leather and prune. The mouthfeel is smooth and long, with fine, polished tannins.

Dark red cherries, plums, tobacco, espresso and licorice take shape in the glass. The tannins are a bit firm, but there is more than enough fruit to stand up to the wine's textural elements. Sweet, perfumed notes laced with Cabernet Franc character develop on the finish, adding lift, perfume and finesse.

A balanced red with currants and cedar and lightly toasted wood. Full body, with velvety tannins and bright finish. Slightly hollow mid-palate but should fill in. A blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Cabernet Franc.

Burdese is Sicily?s tip-of-the-hat to the great wines of Bordeaux. A blended red, the wine is elegant and firm, with dark concentration and earthy tones of leather and spice behind fresh berry and blackberry. Balance and length characterize the mouthfeel.

This is an inky black blend of Cabernets Sauvignon and Franc that shows intense aromas of black fruit, tobacco, graphite mineral, tobacco and leather. The wine is full and generous in the mouth with soft, velvety tannins.

Inspired by the Bordeaux tradition and made from a blend of Cabs Sauvignon and Franc, Burdese is a rich and perfumed wine with penetrating notes of blackberry, currants, tobacco and exotic spice. It is full bodied and concentrated without being overextracted thanks to its vibrant red fruit flavors, silky tannins and long finish.
