Description

What is it about wines from Sicily that are so enticing…? I put it down to a small island in the Mediterranean with the wonderful salty, sea breeze cooling what could be a very warm climate. The wines have a purity of fruit, a salty taste with crunch acidity that you would not think possible from this seemingly hot place. Oh and did I mention that it’s a an active volcano, nothing like living and making wine on the edge….. It’s the danger and risk that helps make these wines cutting-edge…

Smells

raspberry juice concentrate fills the air around the glass, underpinned by salted-liquorice, seaweed with hints of dried fennel.

Tastes

the initial sensation on the palate is of intense red berry concentrate that seduces the senses, luring you into a false sense of juiciness as you are quickly revived by the grainy, gravelly tannins that are so Italian, refreshing the tastebuds and mind. This ying-yang effect is positively exciting and rewarding to the senses, that you cannot help but go back for more. I think this is what excites me so much about wines from Sicily and this is a good wine to start with. Live on the edge, go wild and try something new and different. Perfect with cheese and cured meats and friends.
