Decanter reviews Sicily

Peter McCombie MW seems to like the wines of Baglio del Cristo di Campobello in the Italy 2012 supplement to Decanter - well, who can blame him? The more basic cuvees have lots to offer but it is the two prestige wines that really excite.

Lu Patri 2008: "Wide range of red and black fruit flavours, plenty of freshness and some grip; really a food wine. Very well made, will age and improve" 18/20

Lusira 2008: "Quite ripe and berryish Syrah with nice richness and palate weight. Well crafted with smooth tannins" 17.5/20
