Sicily

Sicily

Sicily is on a roll, making both high-end fine wines, mostly from Etna, and great value wines from Nero d’Avola and Catarratto.

Etna is a fascinating place for wine. Firstly you have a smoking volcano which provides minerality to the wines and secondl you have fantastic varieties in Nerello Mascalese for the reds and Carricante for the whites, and thirdly there are little pockets pf pre-phylloxera vines which bring an added dimension of weight and intensity.
