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 wines are now becoming better known for top quality, from a range of varietals including Grillo, Cataratto and Nero d’Avola alongside international varieties.

2018 Etna Rosso, Pietradolce

Bottle 75cl £19.32

TASTING NOTES

Very pale straw color. Gorgeous nose of white peach, lime, minerals and jasmine. Then fresh and crisp, but with an underlying glyceral note that provides backbone to the zingy citrus and pomaceous orchard fruit flavors. Finishes extremely long with strong notes of fresh ginger and an underpinning of mineral dust. An outstanding Etna Bianco. 94 points, Ian D’Agata, Drink 2019-2023

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 food...

TASTING NOTES

This stunning Nerello Mascalese is alive with energy, embodying orange peel freshness and bright ripe cherry and cranberry fruit. Beautifully nuanced with a richly velveteen texture, the delicate undercurrent of tarry minerals and wild herbal ungrowth provide a fascinating appeal that leads through to the final flourishes on its long finish. A triumphant wine. Armit Wines

TASTING NOTES

A unique wine from pre-phylloxera, 100 year old Nerello Mascalese, whose yields are minute and produce less than half a bottle of wine per vine. The result is an extraordinary achievement. Powerful, concentrated morello cherry combines with violet, raspberry coulis and impressive herbal and spicy scents. There are full, mouthcoating tannins and incredible, wild florals alongside a crunchy acidity. The...

Pietradolce

In Stock

Bottle 75cl £30.08

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

Just 5000 bottles were produced of this wonderful new Cru. The 90 year old vines are located at 900m above sea level on the volcano’s steep northern slopes, weathered by gusty sea winds and drenched in sunlight. The wine is a marvellous contrast to Pietradolce’s fine red Crus, as they aim to extract the character of Etna’s contrada. The wine...

SICILY WINE REGION

Discover the broad range of Sicilian wines from our diverse selection. For a red wine with fruity undertones, try the Beleda Catarratto from Cantine Rallo. Made with primarily Catarratto grapes, the producers vary the remaining grapes each year, so no two vintages are the same. For a dry and crisp white, Pietradolce produce their Rosato – a summery and vibrant Sicilian wine, with a slight acidic undertone. Browse our range of wines from Sicily to find the next addition to your wine cellar.

PRODUCERS OF THE SICILY WINE REGION

Armit Wines proudly supplies Sicilian wines from two producers: Cantine Rallo and Pietradolce. Cantine Rallo has a long history, established in 1860 to produce both table wine and Marsala. Pietradolce has quite a different history. Opening in 2005, the Pietradolce vineyard is situated on the northern slopes of Mount Etna. The producers’ modern approach to viticulture has seen them labelled as one of the Sicily wine region’s most respected producers in only a very short space of time.
