Tenuta Di Castellaro

Bianco Porticello White Blend 2017

Ripe white peaches with a dry, mineral finish. I am sure this would be great on a summer day with calamari. However, was just as good with roast pork shoulder on a cold winter night. — a month ago

Sciare Vive Sicilia Carricante 2017

Wow. Predominantly carricante (with a field blend of minnella, inzolia, grecancico, and catarratto), this Sicilian white from the slopes of Mt Etna is truly unique. Deep golden hue, the wine has aromatics of violet, ash, and maybe even some iodine if you can believe it. The almost red-like quality extends to the palate, which is rich and voluptuous with evolving flavors that echo the nose. Dropping the temp a bit really brings out the latent acidity and creates great balance to support a lingering finish. Absolutely terrific wine. — 2 months ago

A very nice dry volcanic wine!! It reminds me of an Assyrtiko, but more round. This was great with and without food! — 9 days ago

Mineral, saline, flinty and intense. This speaks of Carricante from volcanic soils...
Memorable indeed.
