Fragore Etna Rosso Contrada Montelaguardia Nerello Mascalese 2018

Delectable Wine
9.2

Musky red currants, underbrush and crushed ashen stone form a dark and inviting bouquet as the 2018 Etna Rosso Fragore opens in the glass. This is pure and lifted in style, with vivid wild berry fruits and hints of tangerine energized by bright acidity. The palate is left drenched in primary concentration, as bitter hints of licorice and balsamic spice slowly fade. This is a total success for a difficult vintage. The Fragore hails from the Montelaguardia Contrada on the north side of Etna. It’s refined in second- and third-pass barriques for 16 months. (Eric Guido, Vinous, June 2022)

Sherazade Sicilia Nero d'Avola 2020

I opened it yesterday night so it's been 24 hours. The nose is made of red berries and black pepper and a tiny bit of licorice. There is a bit of heat too. The palate shows a massive acid backbone, tangy red berries notes all along, a good width, a lively mouthfeel, light tannins in the rear kicking off a long finish with fruit and a very subtle dusty layer. It's playful and delicious but it packs a punch. It's probably better to chill it a bit before service. — 2 months ago

Lighea Zibibbo 2021

Highly aromatic, orange flowers, lemon and orange peel, even a little lychee, on the palate, it was balance with medium acidity, and some saline taste. Medium finish. A fantastic wine. — 11 days ago

DOLCE & GABBANA ROSÉ Nerello Mascalese Nocera 2021

Delectable Wine
9.1

With a pretty, pale pink color and sweetly scented nose, the 2021 Rosa Dolce & Gabbana makes a lovely first impression. Ripe melon, Asian pear, mint and nuances of white smoke create an inviting bouquet. It’s round and elegant in feel, engulfing the palate in mineral-tinged orchard fruits and hints of chamomile. A salty flourish emerges through the finale, as notes of sour citrus and inner wet stone slowly fade. This is a total pleasure to taste. The Rosa Dolce & Gabbana is a blend of Nerello Mascalese and Nocera. (Eric Guido, Vinous, May 2022) — a month ago
