Terre Siciliane Il Frappato 2017

Delectable Wine
9.0

Luminous red. Inviting aromas of ripe red cherry, raspberry nectar, cinnamon, and minerals. Fresh and juicy, with lovely inner-mouth perfume to the mineral and sweet, spicy red berry flavors. Finishes long and fragrant. Perhaps not as concentrated as some past Frappatos from this estate, but a lovely wine nonetheless. (Ian D'Agata, Vinous, August 2019) — 10 days ago

Poggio Anima

Asmodeus Sicilia Nero d'Avola

A juicy, if not delectable, treat. This full bodied red is packed with fruit and flavor without being too sweet. Perfect for an evening of Netflix and Pizza or for fireside conversation with friends. Easy on the palete and the wallet. A definite sip. — 8 days ago

Rosso di Verzella Etna Rosso Nerello Blend 2015

Beautiful light red color in the glass. Spices, cherries and a slight musk fill the nose. On the palate you’re initially hit with freshly shaved graphite, a punch of tart cherry juice and a hint of licorice. Mid palate and finish remind me of the fresh cranberry sauce I like to make for Thanksgiving dinner... acidic and tart but just the right amount of sweetness to balance everything out. Volcanic soil gives this wine quite a grippy texture with a fairly tannic finish. Nerello Mascalese dominant wines have been a favorite of mine over the last year, and this bottle is up there as one of my favorites for the money. This bottle particularly tastes almost like a cross of Nebbiolo and Pinot Noir. Pronounced tannic structure of a Nebbiolo but the mystical gracefulness of a nice light bodied Pinot. — 10 days ago

Vurria Terre Siciliane Grillo

Traditional white Sicilian vine, reflecting the volcanic earth. Vurria meaning to desire or wish...the wish is this family continues to make all their wonderful wines. Balance of fruit with acidity. — 4 days ago

Camarda

Terre Siciliane Nerelo Mascalese 2016

3 rd tasting: really, really comes together with air. Has that Etna magic— medium bodied, black cherries, mineral spine holds it all together. Morphing into a favorite, especially under 20$. — 12 days ago

Donnafugata

Lighea Zibibbo

Juicy, fragrant oranges, with a slight peach, balanced out with a little lime. The intense flavor fills the mouth and lingers beautifully. Easy drinking and very refreshing. Amongst a plethora of several other excellent choices, I did not go wrong choosing the Zibibbo. — 7 days ago

9.0

Bright medium-dark red-ruby. Herbs, spices and dark plum with a violet topnote. Then more licorice and herbs in the mouth with a juicy mouthfeel. Finishes bright and fresh with good persistence. If wine could be fun, then this is a blast. (Ian D'Agata, Vinous, August 2019) — 10 days ago
