Feudo di Santa Tresa Frappato 2017
Made with organically farmed grapes, this charming, easy-drinking red is delicately scented with red berry and spice. The luminous, silky palate offers crushed strawberry, juicy cherry, and white cinnamon alongside fresh acidity. Serve slightly chilled for the perfect summer red.
Poggio Anima Uriel Grillo 2016
Golden straw color with mint green hues. The wine shows intensity on the nose with stone fruits and tropical aromas. This is a bit richer on the palate than previous vintages but still retains freshness quite well. Well-balanced medium-bodied wine with fresh mineral notes and tropical fruit characters and a very pleasant citrusy finish.
Stemmari Nero d'Avola 2015
Deep ruby-red with pleasant reflections of violet. Intense and covered, notes of currant stick out, wild strawberries, and pomegranate. Soft and velvety. Distinct characteristics of fruitiness come forth. Pairs well with Risotto, first courses of baked pasta, red meats, lamb and savory cheeses. For its pleasant structure and intense aromaticity, the Nero d'Avola pairs ideally with typical Sicilian dishes, Spaghetti alla Norma, with eggplant, and smoked ricotta cheese.
