Secca del Capo Malvasia 2018

Italy. White. Sicilian.
100% Malvasia grapes. This was a really interesting one; got hints of sea salt more than fruit (maybe some lemon and nectarine), straw color, thick compared to most Italian white blend/moscato/Pinot Grigio...more like a chardonnay consistency but no buttery taste - tasted much lighter. Think of cooking with butter vs olive oil - this is more like olive oil. Went wonderfully with seafood (spaghetti alle vongole)...used it to cook the dish too. Don’t really taste the alcohol (13.5% alc. by vol.). I really liked it and it was unlike other whites I’ve tried. More expensive than other whites I’ve tried but I definitely would get it again as I felt it had more depth. Not a sparkling or wine with “zing”.

Salina Rosso Nerello Cappuccio Nerello Mascalese 2018

50/50 blend of Nerello Capuccio and Nerello Mascalese. Bright ruby color with hints of purple. Fruit forward aromas of bright cherry and blackberry. Hint of red/purple flowers. Pallet is also full of fruit (same as noted above) with additional notes of pepper spice, minerals and wild herbs. Nice texture. — 2 years ago

Terredora di Paolo

Corte di Giso Irpinia Falanghina 2018

Italy. White. Campania.
Very bright and great for summer. Lemon notes. Feels like you’re by the Amalfi Coast - that’s what I like about good Italian wines - the sense of terroir is very vivid. I prefer the Colosi which has more body and less zing but this was good with my seafood pasta. 13.5% alc by vol.
