The Wines of Sicilia

Wines of SiciliaFor the greater part of its history in wine, Sicilia distinguished itself primarily in the dessert wine category—with Marsala headlining its production. Contemporary efforts, however, have established that Sicilia is not merely closer material, but rather, an all-star performer endowed with the resources to lead-off, carry, and bring home an evening's repast.

“The 2018s provide a lighter and friendlier interpretation – a departure from the more austere expressions of the torrid and challenging 2017 vintage. The Etna Rosso here is a blend from Terre Nere’s top vineyards, and right from the pull of the cork the aromatics scream Italy with explosive red fruit, punch, minerality and wild herbs. On the palate it is a mouthful dripping with wild berries, cranberry, candied fruit, a touch of plum, citrus, and spice with a dry, tannic Nebbiolo-like finish. It is here that with you really experience the influence of the volcanic soil with additional nuances of smoke and tar that marry together with herbaceous undertones. The wine does benefit with aeration. This is Nerello Mascalese (95%) and Nerello Cappuccio (5%) that will transport you to Southern Italy begging for pizza with fatty pork sausage. Huge value-driven crowd pleaser.” more info
