SICILY

Sicily is the largest island in the Mediterranean and has a rich vinous history dating back over 2500 years. Its classic Mediterranean climate and soil has resulted in an area not only ideal for winemaking but also olives and citrus fruit which are key exports. Mount Etna dominates the landscape providing mineral-rich dark soil and vineyards are being planted higher up the slope. Historically more famous for the production of Marsala, serious transformation is taking place. Sicily is now becoming better known for top quality wines from a range of varietals including Grillo, Cataratto and Nero d’Avola alongside international varieties.

TASTING NOTES

Every year this fantastic rosé is a favourite of Armit Wines’ staff.  Soft ripe nectarine, raspberry coulis and cranberry combine to create a wonderfully summery, attractive wine with vibrant crunchy redcurrant acidity.  Dry, crisp elegant and full – the finish is long with a hint of soft orange peel which lingers.  This will undoubtedly be a sell out yet again.

2016 Etna Rosso, Pietradolce

Bottle 75cl £17.00

Image of wine Archineri Etna Rosso
BUY
TASTING NOTES

This Archineri Etna Rosso is a wine of absolutely stunning precision and character.  It is very reflective of its volcanic territory; with a fine, smoky intensity.  Bright redcurrant, dried rose petal and crab-apple notes accompany subtle earthy and herbal scents.  This savoury complexity is supported by fine, chewy tannins and textbook cherry juiciness.  This is a serious wine which demands...

TASTING NOTES

From vines planted over a century ago on sandy loam soils at over 850m on Etna’s vertiginous slopes, this is a remarkable expression of the indigenous Carricante grape.   Detailed notes of white peach, lemon, lime and soft sage create a full and distinct aroma which leads to an elegant, intense mouthfeel; stony, chalky minerals fill the palate which has a...

TASTING NOTES

This 100% Carricante displays a piercingly mineral aroma; salty, herbaceous, grassy notes combine with soft white peach and a flinty, stony-inflected tang.  The wine is crisp, lean with vibrant.  Its racy acidity provides a fresh, clear and linear mouthfeel.  Lemon juice and lemon peel lead to a long and refreshing finish.  The perfect summer drink.

TASTING NOTES

Catarratto is one of Sicily's indigenous varieties and one we almost never see on these shores. The brilliant Rallo is one producer championing this variety and really demonstrating what can be achieved when yields are restricted and it receives the attention it deserves. A wine with precise, linear acidity and a beautifully textured mouthfeel, this is all about fresh citrus...
