'Pirao' Bianco Carricante

Wow. Wonderful wine. Crunchy minerals, invitingly textural, and super sapid acidity with just a hint of electric effervescence. Developing into a multilayered joy machine. Japanese nashi pear & shiro momo joining the flavor festival. Indigenous Carricante grape representing the majority of the blend with Grecanico, aka Garganega of Soave, rounding it out. Delightful juice. — 11 days ago

Il Piccolo Terre Siciliane Syrah 2018

Nose. Is like plum flower gorgeous. Wow. Complex. Spice flower. Knife edge. Jam your nose in a flower good. Old skool Volnayish. A field of intense lilacs at peak season.

Palate is fresh early season wild blackberries. Masterful. Sweet fruit. Wow. Internal aromatics are like inhaling a Flower garden. Such freshness. Cru Beaujolais from different grapes made by god. Internal aromatics are godlike. Sick texture.

As you swallow just insane. So fresh. Wild berries. Wild aromatics.

Long finish. Adheres to the palate. Great fresh acidity. So fresh on the finish. Succulent. Salivatory.

Contained density the allows the wine to have nuance.

Munjebel Terre Siciliane Bianco White Blend 2017

One of the most complex wines I have ever tasted. If it had Co2 it could pass as a beer. Deep golden color with hints of cooked apple and malt. Finish fell short and the lack of acid results in the posted score. — 5 days ago

Santo Spirito Etna Rosso Nerello Mascalese 2017

Liked this wine so much, had to get another bottle, just great, consistent quality. Vines grown in deep volcanic ash. Pale Ruby with aromas of fresh red fruits and slight smoky tobacco notes. On the palate juicy sour cherry and strawberry with slight fennel spice, well balanced with acidity. Fine tannins, rich finish ending with fruit, mineral, sweet spice and smoky meaty notes. Outstanding! — 6 days ago

Tenuta delle Terre Nere

Etna Bianco Carricante Blend 2017

An outstanding Italian white, I just had to taste again. 100% Carricante grown in deep volcanic soil, aged in French oak for 10 months . Pale lemon with aromas of stone and citrus fruits and honeysuckle blossom. On the palate flavors of apple, apricot and lemon citrus with creamy vanilla wrapped in generous acidity, long finish ending with wet stone minerality. Nice, consistent quality. — 6 days ago

Terre Siciliane Rosato 2019

Delectable Wine
9.2

Incredibly deep ruby in color, this Rosato displays ripe cherries, offset by tangerine, rose petals, and exotic spice. Soft textures lead in to a pure expression of floral-laced red fruits and minerals, finishing fresh but also showing a youthful structure. This is really quite stunning. $23.00 (Eric Guido, Vinous, July 2020) — 3 days ago
