Etna Bianco Carricante Blend 2020

Blend of blend of 60% Carricante, 25% Catarratto, 10% Grecanico and 5% Minnella, aged in French oak for 10 months. Pale lemon with aromas of stone and citrus fruits adding honeysuckle blossom. On the palate flavors of apple, apricot and lemon citrus with creamy vanilla wrapped in generous acidity, long finish ending with wet stone minerality. Nice! — 24 days ago

Tenuta San Leonardo

Terre di San Leonardo Vigneti delle Dolomiti Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2017

Lovely aromatic with red fruit, pomegranate, some cassis and an undertone of dark, moist earth. A hint of pencil shavings, too.
On the palate this is medium bodied, cool, fresh & juicy, the tannins adding a nice, firm frame. Nice interplay between the sweet & sour red fruit and savoury undertones. Long silky finish with a touch of mint & sage.
Fresher & cooler than 2016, but consistently v. good & brilliant value for a Bordeaux blend! Yum!

Terre Nere (Campigli Vallona)

Rosso di Montalcino Sangiovese 2017

Popped and poured, consumed over three days; best on day two and three. The 2017 Rosso pours a brilliant garnet color with a translucent core and a watery rim. Medium viscosity with very little to no staining of the tears. No signs of sediment or particles. On the nose, the wine is medium intensity. Redolent with cherries, red rope licorice, dusty earth, dried herbs, a slight touch of baking spices, and red flowers. On the palate, the wine is dry with medium+ tannin and medium+ acid. Confirming the red cherry fruits, green herbs and baking space. There’s also a bit of bergamot and black tea. The finish is long and very delicious. Overall, a wine of freshness too. Another beauty by a very underrated producer. — a month ago

Passopisciaro

Contrada S Terre Siciliane Nerello Mascalese 2013

Perfect after 9 years in bottle. Burgundian dark cherry notes, muted tannins, smooth with no mustiness. I personally still prefer a touch of added cappuccio like my fave Terre Nere. — 5 days ago

Calderara Sottana Etna Bianco Carricante 2019

White grape and a touch of smoke. Chardonnay-like; perhaps less varietal character and overt minerality than I was expecting, but this is still young. Great acid and a touch of sweetness on the finish. I think this just needs a decade. — a month ago

Etna Rosso Nerello Mascalese Blend

Fantastic. Rustic, subtle fruit, earthy somewhat balanced red. Softer texture is what makes it less balanced. But still great. — 12 days ago
