Sicily, Italy

Giotto Bini

Serragghia Bianco Secco Zibibbo

Bought this knowing nothing about the wine on recommendation of my Delectable friend Anthony Lombardi, whom I have actually never met (one of the many things I love about this app). My initial reaction to the color and nose was WTF, not having any experience with these wines, but then I got it. Orange rind, over ripe peach, nectarine, apricot, orangina, capers, lemons, spice, sand, bunch of other stuff, all coming from a cloudy, orangish, smoky liquid that resembled what I understood to be wine, and I can’t say there was a finish because I kept tasting it long after it was done. Oh and it changed a lot over several hours. Felt archaic, organic, creative, weird, and natural. Thanks Anthony. — 10 days ago

Pithos Rosso Vittoria Nero d'Avola Frappato 2017

Bit of a Sicilian wine theme in progress as we cross our fingers that a trip there in late October may happen. Much better on day 2 than day 1 - suggest some serious airtime if popping. Restrained and quite pretty with a good amount of flowers and earth. Slightly less acid than expected, but a good pairing with burgers made with beef from Kinderhook farms (thanks @Severn Goodwin for the recommendation you didn’t know you were making). — 8 days ago

If you need anything else, check out Pigasso Farm in Copake, they have similar stuff as KF, but bigger selection and more protein diversity, they're one of our go-to's also.

Vino Rosso Nero d'Avola Blend

Nate Wall
9.3

No sulfur? No problem! So vibrant. The carbonic like Grenache notes really sing, and always love Nero d’Avola. Floral, violets, almost blue-fruited aromatics not unlike Northern Rhône, but then soft and supple tannins, Light-to medium bodied, just lovely. — 4 days ago

Arianna Occhipinti

Terre Siciliane Il Frappato

Dark garnet in the glass. A rather fantastic nose with a distinct potpourri thing going along with a bit of tar. Light to medium weight on the palate with tart cherries, dark seeded brambles and packed with all kinds of rocks and minerals. Good spine of acid. A gorgeous wine really. Arianna Occhipinti is making serious and beautiful wines with the humble Frappato grape and I love it! — 9 days ago

Lato Sud Nerello Mascalese 2018

Beautiful, finessed elegant wine. Matchstick reduction include the nose which blows off to floral & fresh cherry notes. Ethereal weight with the mildest tannic grip. Fantastic stuff. — 12 days ago

Etna Bianco Catarratto 2018

For an Etna has a surprising amount of sweetness that does not detract from its overall approach: white peach & floral notes. Edging into light medium bodied territory. Some concentration & seductive mouthfeel. Is it possible for me to be disappointed by an Etna producer?! — 24 days ago

Susucaru Rosato Malvasia Blend 2016

A lot darker than the younger vintages. Bright aromas with green apple, blossom, blood orange and sour cherries. Pure joy, this falls close to my recollection of the fantastic aromas of both the red and white Serragghia. I have’nt had problems with mousiness in Frank’s wines before, but it is there on the second day. Last bottle should be drunk quicker. — 9 days ago

Cerasuolo di Vittoria DOCG 2018

Quite a nice etna rosso. Extremely juicy with lots of red fruit balanced by good earth and ace. A bit less integrated - “rustic”, if you like. But nice finish and overall an enjoyable wine for sure. — 2 days ago
