Cerasuolo di Vittoria Nero d'Avola Frappato 2015

Tonight is Saturday night and I have opened the 2015 Planeta Cerasuolo Di Vittoria - Sicilia. Made up of 60% Nero D' Avola and 40% Frappato. Have been wanting to try more wine from Sicily. I have been hearing a lot of good things coming from this area.

The nose is very aromatic with red fruit, dried strawberries, dried raspberries, cherry cola, balsamic, floral notes, spice and dried herbs.

On the palate I get red berries, wild cherry, strawberry, plum, ginger, spice, herbs and dusty soil.

This wine is medium supple bodied with medium + acidity and medium + sandy tannins that lead to a long vibrant lasting finish. Sicilian wines are showing real well and I will have to try more. The weekend is going well and I hope everyone are enjoying themselves. Stay safe continued prosperity. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Ginestra Etna Bianco Carricante 2015

Needs to air out and warm up a bit, but then it shows unique scents of wild flowers, flinty minerals, and white pulpy fruit. Intense, linear palate, with equal parts fruit and minerality. Bone dry, and has a light bitterness in the finish that would pair excellently with sweet seafood, like Nantucket Bay Scallops (which are in season right now, but, unfortunately, I’m not in Massachusetts). — 5 days ago

Sicilia Il Frappato 2015

Nose of red Forrest fruits, very lovely. Palate with a strong acid backbone and same red fruits dancing around it. Very long and subtle palate that ends with a long finish full of grace and fruits. Very burgundy like! Love it — 4 days ago

Vittoria Frappato

Biodynamic Frappato. Full of dried fruits: plums, grapes, raisins with black licorice, clove and anise. Really enjoyable and you taste a sense of purity to the wine. Recommended — 13 days ago

Tami'

Terre Siciliane Frappato 2016

Tami’ is overseen by the much lauded Arianna Occhipinti. It has ample fruit, strong ties to the earth, and an approachable structure low in tannin. It has aromas of strawberry, sandalwood, clove, and salty sea air. Fruity and light with strong acid and flavors of wet slate, it has a cool drapery in lieu of anything abrasive, tart, sour, or crunchy. Strawberry licorice kick at the finish. — 5 days ago
