An appealing example of Sicily's Grillo grape, combining ripeness with freshness, soft texture with a zesty finish and serving up lemon, spice, white peach and herby olive oil in between. Rating: 88 The Wine Gang - 2017)

Bright straw yellow in color. The bouquet has notes of white and yellow-fleshed fruit, floral aromas of mimosa and chamomile, mineral aromas and Mediterranean herbs. On the palate the wine is fresh and tangy with pleasant fruit and a long, invigorating finale heightened by lively citrus notes.Winemaker's notes(Aug 2017)

Le Casematte

There can't be too many wine estates named after WWII gun emplacements, but the three concrete casemattes among the vines designed to protect the Strait of Messina have indeed inspired the name of Le Casematte - "a place where grapevines have supplanted death" they say on their web-site, probably quite profound. Le Casematte was founded in 2008 by former footballer Andrea Barzagli and accountant Gianfranco Sabbatino. The vines are in the north of Sicily, with vineyards rising to 500m above sea-level, and northerly exposures helping to mitigate the southern sun-shine. They are committed to organic farming.
