I probably drink too many Etna wines, so for a change here’s a Sicilian wine that is NOT from the volcano. It’s from the center of the island, near the city of Caltagirone, and it’s an unusual blend of two expected grapes (Nero d’Avola and Frappato) and one fairly unexpected one (Alicante Bouschet). Grown in dense vineyards planted with head-trained bush vines at about 1000 feet above sea level, this wine has a deep garnet color and a stony core surrounded by blackberry, licorice, and black cherry fruit. At once ripe and chiseled with acidity, this is a perfect expression of Sicily in many ways. It bears the i Vigneri stamp of consultant Salvo Foti, a good sign if there ever was one on Sicilian bottles. — a year ago

Etna Rosso Nerello Mascalese Nerello Cappuccio 2017

Light, spicy, intoxicating aromas: fruit pastry, fruit taffy, berry and confectionary nose, followed by a completely indulgent palate with loads of acid, spice and a wonderful echo of sweetness. Foti is the master. — 9 months ago

Vinudilice Metodo Classico Spumante Rosé Blend

Volcanic rocks and tiny berries, red fruits, rhubarb, a touch of caramel candy. Creamy mouthfeel, cutting acid and subtle tannins. And a finish that goes on for minutes. Sometimes a wine speaks so much of place, it’s hard to describe, but drinking this brings me back to Etna in a way few others can. High altitude (1300m) blend of indigenous Etna grapes blanc de noir. Everything is there for graceful long term aging too. Brilliant wine. Disgorged 2019 — 3 years ago

Vinudilice Rosé Blend 2017

Wowow. Salmon-ruby colored, packed with red fruit, pink-green just ripe strawberries, wild berry, and zingy minerality and acid. But with a leesy, buttery quality reminiscent of great rosé champagne. Intoxicating combination, leading with the nose. Excellent texture and mouthfeel, and a long finish. Great stuff; some of the top rosé, anywhere. — 2 years ago
