We’re excited to introduce two new wines to our list. Both hail from the island of Sicily which boasts one of Europe’s most dynamic wine industry. Sicily is known for Marsala but also has a rich history of wine production. Records show wine has been produced there since 4000 BC! Its dry, warm climate features regular sunshine and moderate rainfall that suits wine production.
The Nero D’Avola leads with a bouquet of vanilla and red berry scents mixed with zesty notes of coffee and cocoa. It’s a mouth-filling, warm wine, with pleasing tannic notes. On the palate there’s spicy hints of pepper, red berries and vanilla with a long finish with persistent notes of raspberry.
The Grillo leads with enticing scents of citrus fruit and white-blossom that resemble the Sicilian countryside, alongside notes of yellow peach and white melon developing on delightful nuances of sage and wild mint. This fresh and easy drinking wine is fruity and pleasant on the palate with moderate salinity reminiscent of a crisp Sauvignon. The mouthfeel is perfectly balanced, with an excellent acidity that provides freshness and harmony. (Grillo is a varietal that’s been associated with Marsala but in recent years has been used to make DOC wines of exceptional character.)
