Palmento di Salina Rosso Non Rosso 2020

Translucent red rather than dark pink like a light cranberry juice! Nose of strawberry, raspberry & maybe tart apple. Closer to medium body than light, not like a typical rosé. Fairly smooth with some tartness and mild acidity. Nicely balanced with some minerality like ocean rock ending with a touch of salinity. Nice- — 25 days ago

Secca del Capo Malvasia 2018

Italy. White. Sicilian.
100% Malvasia grapes. This was a really interesting one; got hints of sea salt more than fruit (maybe some lemon and nectarine), straw color, thick compared to most Italian white blend/moscato/Pinot Grigio...more like a chardonnay consistency but no buttery taste - tasted much lighter. Think of cooking with butter vs olive oil - this is more like olive oil. Went wonderfully with seafood (spaghetti alle vongole)...used it to cook the dish too. Don’t really taste the alcohol (13.5% alc. by vol.). I really liked it and it was unlike other whites I’ve tried. More expensive than other whites I’ve tried but I definitely would get it again as I felt it had more depth. Not a sparkling or wine with “zing”.
