Terre Siciliane Il Frappato

100% Frappato from Vittoria. Very very reductive. Fresh squeezed black and red cherries. Touch of VA. Earth and minerals are pretty obvious. Bright and high acidity. Silky smooth tannin. Slight green on the finish which is very pleasant. Everything is so well integrated and feels natural. Had high expectations on this and it doesn’t disappoint at all. β€” 8 days ago

Even though I love Sicilian wine, this is the first time I've actually had this producer! It's fantastic too. Lot's of herbal, red fruit notes. Not as funky as COS but has energy and vibrancy in spades. β€” 25 days ago

@Mason Balistreri @Ted Corvey I visited this product a few months ago in October located on the favoured Northern slopes of Mt Etna. This is great value. Also worth checking out their individual Contradas. Strangely enough their Flagship Wine called Franchetti and named after the owner is a blend of 70% Petit Verdot! I bought a bottle of the 2014 but still cellaring it.

Guardiola Bianco Sicilia Chardonnay 2011

Super impressed by this Chardonnay. Great intensity and tons of minerality. A rare treat to have a Chard with several years of age. β€” 6 days ago

NeroJbleo Nero d'Avola 2013

Lots of umami here with sun dried tomatoes, fresh fig, ripe blackberries and a healthy pinch of spices - bay leaf, allspice, pepper.
Medium bodied and soft with juicy acidity and polished tannins. Great balance and drinkability - begs for another sip!

Maldafrica Terre Siciliane Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2013

50/50 Cab Sauv/Merlot Sicilian Blend. Rich and Ripe. Dark Fruit, cassis, red currant aromas and flavors with big notes of menthol and gingerbread spices. Pleasantly funky! Relatively low alcohol means that it can pair with many different foods and that we can drink more! β€” 9 days ago

Pithos Bianco Terre Siciliane Grecanico

Delicious funky orange Italian wine. Some grassy elements amid orange peel. Chalky at times. Almost refreshing, but with just enough complexity to hold you back so you can enjoy sipping rather than devouring. β€” 11 days ago

De Aetna Etna Rosso Red Blend 2015

From magnum @Ted Corvey - immediate touch of spritz from natural wine making process followed by bright, fresh, not quite ripe cherry, a hint of funk, and up front acid made this a great food wine, not overly complex - good but not my favorite on the πŸŒ‹ β€” 21 days ago

Sicilia IGT Insolia 2012

2012. Nose is strawberry, cumin, leather, plum, white pepper. Very tight but after aerating and 20 min of patiently waiting, opening up to more plum, berries, celery, licorice. Chewy, medium bodied and nice. β€” 20 days ago
