Pithos Rosso Vittoria Nero d'Avola Frappato 2015

This is just an annoyingly good wine. This has so much going on and yet it is so gulpable. This wine is fermented on its skins with the native yeast in ancient amphorae, giving a beautiful dank, earthy, musky dried floral aromatic. Sour wild cherries, slight brown sugar, a touch of red licorice, and stunning high toned cranberry-like acidity. Nothing is lost here. It has earth and fruit mixing beautifully. This wine truly is the epitome of my favorite descriptor of wine: funky fresh. I think I’m in love with this Cos lineup. — 2 days ago

Inzolia dei Fornelli 2016

Inzolia makes me a special kind of happy. Reminiscent of my Sicilian roots, the perfect balance of acidity, sweet, tart, and delicious. So perfect with these oysters. — 4 days ago

Siciliano Amaro Liqueur

Supes similar to Montenegro but...more baking spice, more ginger that is. A whiff of orange blossom. So yummy. Dammit I can’t really choose a fave Amaro yet. I’m in for what bitters can do. — 15 days ago

Collezione Terre Siciliane Nero d'Avola 2015

This is a beautiful wine! Evidently the Nero D’avola grape is the most important grape in Sicily. Why have I never tried this before? It’s a full bodied wine with a wonderful lingering taste of plum. Will definitely be drinking more of this in the future. Paired this wine with a fresh veggie/shrimp pasta plate. The Wine Cellar - Boynton Beach, FL — 2 days ago

Terre Siciliane Frappato 2016

2016 Cos Frappato and Sun Ra. Visionaries together. Wine is tart, fresh blackberry with moderate structure. Love the weight on this one. Packs a ton of deep fruit without any heaviness on a hot evening. The record is a great place to get to know the relaxed side of Sun Ra. Great things which go great together. — 14 days ago
