92 points Eric Guido (Vinous): "Sweet violets and rose come together with crushed blackberries and a spritz of tangerine to form an inviting bouquet as the 2019 Nero d'Avola Lagnusa opens in the glass. It’s silky-smooth and round, the ripe black fruits and confectionary spices creating a seductive display. Brisk acids and minerals build tension through the finale, making pleasant punctuation to such an extroverted yet balanced expression. Drink 2021-2026. (Jun 2021)"
91 points Monica Larner (Wine Advocate): "The organic Feudo Montoni 2019 Sicilia Nero d'Avola Lagnusa is named after the Sicilian word for "lazy" because of the low yields associated with this particular growing site with heavy clay soils. Smooth and silky, the wine gives us a very accurate portrayal of the grape, with plenty of ripe, dark and purple fruits followed by scorched earth, toasted almond and a hint of black olive. Nero d'Avola sometimes renders smoky tar or resin, and you can sense that here. Some 98,000 bottles were made. Enjoy this excellent value wine with a pulled-pork barbecue sandwich. Drink 2021-2024. (Nov 2021)"
91 points Kerin O'Keefe (Wine Enthusiast): "[$23 list] Heady aromas of ripe black-skinned berry, blue flower and Mediterranean scrub are front and center on this smooth red. Made with organically grown grapes, it's delicious and accessible, featuring blackberry jam, ripe black cherry, star anise and baking spice alongside supple tannins. Fresh acidity keeps it balanced. Drink through 2026. (Dec 2020)"
