Fuedo Arancio

Stemmari Pinot Noir 2016

Satisfying #pinotnoir discovery from #siciliadoc at a private restaurant party. I wonder how they get enough cool evenings down in Sicily during those hot summers for this grape? Nevertheless, it works nicely - wild cherry fruit up front, very restrained oak and manageable tannins. The wine worked well with some Italian favorites like lasagne and sweet sausage. — 7 months ago

Nero Sichilli Sicilia Nero d'Avola 2012

Charles (Chad) Bucklin

Opaque with a deep ruby core and blood red rim. Med intensity and complexity on the nose showing meat, leather, black pepper, stewed date and plum, and very ripe strawberry and huckleberry. The body was full on the palate with med + tannin, high abv, and med - acid leaving the structure a touch flabby. Med complexity showing some ripe fruit, bitterness, and earthy and medicinal notes. Balance was off and the length was driven by animal notes. Tasty and rustic though. #savino #nerodiavola #siciliadoc #sicily #italy #ctbucklinwine — 3 years ago
