Second chance to try this incredible Sicilian wine in less than a month! Great find at Charleston Wine and Company, of you see this buy it no questions asked. Tremendous nuance and integration in a tough hot vintage. This was a delicious bottle of wine that I wish I had given a bit more air because it hit got better toward the end of the bottle. I previously had the 2008 vintage which is one of my favorite wines I've ever had, this isn't that but is still pretty memorable.

WOTN! Blend of several indigenous Sicilian grapes (50% Nerello Mascalese, 20% Nerello Cappucio, 20% Nocera, 10% other indigenous varietals) from vineyards right off the Straights of Messina. Not an Etna wine, but embraces if not surpasses the Burgundian qualities many high end Sicilian wines approach. Tremendous acid balance and tannin integration that can only come from precise wine making. Very deep but funky mushroom, red fruit, forest floor, and slightly brett nose. On the palate tremendous fruit quality tastes of red berries, peach, and floral notes end up giving way to herbaceous and leather undertones. Again, thanks @Kyle Harvey for lugging this across the world for the summit!
