Tasca D'Almerita

Tascante Ghiaia Nera Nerello Mascalese 2013

Not technically Etna Rosso (100% Nerello Mascalese), but the spirit is there. Lovely floral and mineral expression with serious tannin structure. — 8 days ago

Sicilia Nero d'Avola 2017

9.9

Beautiful red color. Bold flavors with subtle tannins. Lots of fruit notes (cherry, blackberries) and slightly drier than I was expecting for the variation (thank god!). It is very drinkable, a good substitute for Pinot Noir or Malbec. Approachable for beginning drinkers who can’t tolerate full-bodies Cabs or Merlots yet. I sense it will be delicious with steak! — 7 days ago

Feudo Maccari

Saia Sicilia Nero d'Avola

Very fresh aromas of red berries, summer flowers, and touch of sweet herbs on the nose. Dark but brighr ruby red color together with lively flavors of raspberry, mulberry, and hint of spice on the palate. Medium-to-full-bodied with vibrant acidity, decent amount of tannins, and medium length on the finish. Fruity, very refreshing, and good value. — 12 days ago

Cantine Francesco Minini

Villa Pozzi Nero d'Avola 2017

Not one of the best Nero D’Avola wines I’ve had. Smells delicious and has great color but a bit too acidic for me. Bummer... may need another year or two — 11 days ago

Murgo

Etna Bianco Carricante Catarratto

Outstanding value. Beautiful floral overtones and bright orchard fruit aromas. White flowers, peach, tropical fruit and sea salt. Very balanced with some finesse to it. — 4 days ago

@Jordan Wardlaw Jordan the Sicilian wine producers in my opinion have really up their game over the past 10 years. I have had this label numerous times and always enjoyed it. Cheers 🍷🇮🇹

Terre Siciliane Il Frappato 2015

Lovely, focused stuff. Tart red fruits. Black minerality. Light on its toes. Clean edges, good posture. Lithe but powerful, a gymnast. — 2 days ago

Vecchie Vigne Sicilia Nerello Mascalese 2007

9.1

Warm vintage, elevated alcohol and concentration but much welcome for dinner on a cold January night. Scorched earth typicity prevails over barnyard aromas, slight va adding lift, but generally a sound bottle compared to past experience. The velvety/evolved tannins of this wine elevated its rusticity past other more predictably high toned and rigid Etna Rossos. — 3 days ago

Tenuta Di Castellaro

Bianco Porticello White Blend

Super exotic, fruity aromatics from the moscato followed by bone dry, acidity from the carricante. From an island off the coast of Sicily I never knew existed. Bndvno. 12.5 alc. I'd drink this like it's my job in the summer! — 4 hours ago

Pietro Caciorgna

Ciauria Etna Rosso Nerello Mascalese 2016

Клубника, земляника, брусника, шелковица, годжи, сушёный кизил, лечо, болгарский перец, сухая хвоя, смола, цветы. Среднее тело с достаточной кислотностью и плюшевыми танинами. Мягко, сочно, в меру легко и дружелюбно, с яркой, но прозрачной фактурой. Немного зелено, с едва просвечивающими поверх сладких ягод пиразинами и легкими специями. Чуть рустично в своем старательно тонком стиле; не жарко, но ощутимо тепло. Без большой естественной спонтанности, однако довольно симпатично. — 17 days ago
