Siccagno Nero d'Avola 2014

Made for the long haul with a bit of brooding black fruit and solid structure. Has a bit of acidity which balances the wine out well and makes it enjoyable now. — 16 days ago

Calabretta

Sicilia Pinot Nero


So...transparently volcanic! Ash, smoke along with fresh steak tartare, herbs. Dark berry fruits play a secondary role. Still very tannic, but also very transparent. Wow. Really excited to see how this evolves

Firriato

Chiaramonte Nero d'Avola 2015

I think this wine was really good when paired with pasta and rich Italian sauces. It holds up to the flavors we long for when we want an Italian meal. This vintage may be better than other years. — 10 days ago

Arianna Occhipinti

Terre Siciliane Il Frappato 2016

Occhipininti’s wines are part of the zeitgeist but are also incredibly well balanced and not overly avant garde or divisive.

Il Frappato is lucid ruby and her best expression by a long shot. Beautifully restrained red fruit and subtle wood doused in minerals. Exceptional texture - soft fruit with big grip.
