Tenuta di Fessina

Laeneo Sicilia IGT Nerello Cappuccio 2016

Wow. Cannot overstate how caught off guard I am by how pretty this wine is. Soft, elegant fruit — orange, raspberry, red cherries—herbal, a hint of rain-fresh mud, bright acid and firm tannins add grit. I’m finding more. — 6 days ago

Etna Rosso Nerello Mascalese 2016

At the Toowoomba Wine Show Judges Dinner - no detailed notes other than to say that this was a typical light to medium bodied Etna red with plenty of minerality. Made for Tapas. — 22 days ago

Tifeo Etna Rosato 2016

On this fall day, I was dreaming about my trip up Mt. Etna and they amazing time we had with the two owners of this winery. Cherry, strawberry mineral love. Every sip brings back a fond memory of our time in Sicily. — 8 days ago

Feudo Montoni

Vigna della Timpa Grillo 2018

Parking near a bush of jasmine flowers on a hot day in June. Meyer lemons sweet enough to cut into smiles like oranges. Like coming back from a tropical vacation- wishing you were still there. Longingly scrolling through your photos — 11 days ago

Red Blend

As a cyclist I love the label. As a wine drinker, this is a really good unpretentious red blend that I’m enjoying right now with a cheese and anchovy pizza. Bravissimo!!!! — 6 days ago

Black cherries, mild smoke & tobacco, hint of pepper. Full-bodies and bold, tannins are not overwhelming, astringent. Great value. — 21 hours ago

Tenuta delle Terre Nere

Calderara Sottana Etna Rosso Nerello Cappuccio Nerello Mascalese 2016

Another spectacular effort from Terre Nere. Very young but already accessible. However additional cellartime will be needed. Drank it over 4 hours and noted quite some evolution in both nose and mouthfeel. Great! — 14 days ago
