    Producer

    The vineyards are situated in the hills above lake Arancio, the water of this lake is a vital nourishment for the vineyards during the hot Summer months and allows the grapes to reach the perfect ripening. The vines grow at an altitude of 985 feet above sea level on slopes facing southeast. The espalier-trained vines grow on clay-loam terrain and are harvested in late September. The shoots of Nerello grapes are cut so as to allow a natural withering of the grapes which increase the amount of sugar, thanks to the Sicilian hot sun and to the wind that comes from Africa.

    Region

    Sicily is not only the largest wine region in the Meditteranean it's also Italy's largest wine region and is divided into four regions comprising 23 denominations of origin. A very wide range of varieties are culitvated on the island on equally diverse terrior including volcanic soils, but it's not all about Mount Etna. The most recognisable native grape is Nero d'Avola which amongst other varieties such as Nerello Mascalese, Carricante and Frappato create distinctive wines which have soared in popularity on international markets in recent years amongst more adventurous wine drinkers. Producers to look for Azienda Agricola COS & Passopisciaro.

    Vanity of vanities; all is vanity. And I should know. Blood plum and cherry, pepper, creamed honey from some oak, I assume, smattering of smoky dried herb and black pudding (or sanguinaccio if you’d rather). Medium bodied, crisp, smoky herbal, but creamy red fruits too, quite bloody, spicy, all kinds of things, ripe strawberry and pepper on a solid finish. A bit different. With food, best, of course.
