After talking about it for far too long, our shipment of Sicilian wine is finally here and we have set a date for a tasting. We first tasted these wines back in November and they absolutely blew us away, so we’re very excited to finally be able to share them with you…
This unique land, with ideal conditions for wine-growing and a wealth of indigenous varieties has long been Italy’s biggest grower of wine grapes, but the shift away from quantity and towards some serious quality is often under-represented on UK shelves.
From a delicious lemon sherbert fizz to fragrant, floral yet gutsy whites; soft, bold and perfumed Nero d’Avola, a meaty, burnt-orange Etna Rosso (a style often compared with good Burgundy) and a beautifully fresh Moscato, we’ll be talking you through wines (eight in total) from two estates on the eastern side of the island, Costantino from the slopes of Mt Etna, and Cantine Gulino from a little further south in Siracusa, both of which we currently have exclusively within the UK.
