Susucaru Rosato Malvasia Blend 2016

Легкая газация на старте. Клюква, кислая вишня с черенком, белая смородина, абрикосы, маракуйя, красный апельсин, лимонный сок, соленый арбуз, мятые цветы, розовый перец, гвоздика, миндаль, глина, уголь. Худое, жилистое тело с дрожащим нервом кислотности, молодые мелкозернистые танины. Пока ещё чуть шаткий баланс сочных, парфюмированных тропиков и строгой вертикальной структуры. Ярко, но не утомительно; с грязью под ногтями, но без запаха стойла; идиосинкратично, но при этом чрезвычайно питко. — 7 days ago

I thought this was such a crazy weird wine. Truly needs a lot of time to digest its complex meaning.

Had no idea that they grew cab and merlot in Sicily. It’s a Sicilian super Tuscan. Awesome. — 16 days ago

Il Monovitigno Sicilia Nerello Mascalese 2005

A gorgeous mid weight wine that is almost Barolo like in appearance. Cassis and leather hit the palate and unfold graciously through the long finish. Now with thirteen years behind it, this wine has developed gorgeous tertiary notes that add sophistication. — 19 days ago

Rosato

Shhhh don’t tell the French I’ve stepped out with an Italian. A lively organic jammer, tasting of cherries and melon. Dry as I prefer, but light acidity. Fantastico! — 7 days ago

Moganazzi - Volta Sciara Etna Rosso Nerello Blend 2013

Volcano juice! Wild cherries with plenty of earthy notes and a delicious smokiness. I’m having this with salmon with anchovy-garlic butter and it is an outstanding match. On a side note, this is an easy recipe from the New York Times. — 4 hours ago

Etna Rosso Red Blend 2016

Very solid Etna Rosso. A touch reduced but there’s plenty of fruit if you’re patient enough to give it some air. Easier said than done. — 5 days ago
