Orphéus Etna DOC Rosso Nerello Mascalese Blend 2018

Classic volcanic red. Dark garnet. Abundant nose of blackberry tea, brick, and red apple peel. Echoed on the medium palate with juicy medium plus acidity and fine, earthen medium tannins. Palate continues through the dark and lengthy finish. What Etna is all about. Juicy, earthen fruit that's a fine accompaniment to almost any red wine (and some white wine) fare. Great alternative to Pinot Noir or Garnacha. Drink now through 2026. — 6 days ago

Pithos Rosso Vittoria Nero d'Avola Frappato 2019

Wish I had better things to say. Great nose but all up-front palate and no mid, no finish, slight bitterness. — 18 hours ago

Siccagno Nero d'Avola 2018

Surprisingly spritely for a Nero d’Avola. Forest floor, herbs and brambly berry on the nose. Red fruited, punchy palate with defining minerality. Very cool! — 7 days ago

Normanno

Ciello Bianco Terre Siciliane Catarratto 2020

Good! Very drinkable- easy to take down. A little chalky, lemon blossoms, more citrus on the nose than the palate. — 2 days ago

Thanks, Jamie for the correction. Haha I was recalling the wrong Italian varietal that started with an ‘n.’ This wine is delicious.

Volatile and rustic but has the rare Burgundian sense of completeness and convergence of flavors. The aroma lasts several days undiminished in a glass. — 9 days ago

Vinding Montecarrubo

Vignolo Terre Siciliane Syrah 2016

Bold notes of blue flowers, violet, blackberries, plums, piñon, velvet and tobacco. Beautifully tannic, with a spine of lingering spice, rich and acid driven, with notes of dried wood, blood orange, blueberry cobbler, and a surprisingly dry finish with notes of clove and wet earth. Perfect pairing for light to medium spice Mexican food and probably my favorite Syrah. A personal game changer. — 8 days ago

Girolamo Russo

San Lorenzo Etna Rosso Nerello Mascalese - Nerello Cappuccio 2018

Quite expensive at 63$. Raspberries, red berries. Tart and acidic. Orange rinds. Needs another 3-4 years. Quite a step up from the usual Sicilian reds. Not a replacement for a Burgh but close and not really a bargain. — 7 days ago
