|Grapes||Nerello Mascalese, Nocera|
|District||IGP Terre Sicilliane|
The 2016 is a gorgeous expression of Nerello Mascalese from this beautiful spot on the Sicillian coast facing the toe of Italy. This is darker with a touch of sinew to the fruit, black cherry, blackberry juice and an earthy note. Above all though the feel is bright and aromatic with a lovely, crisp delivery, well balanced with good length and persistence. Drinking range: 2018 - 2025 L&S (Apr 2018)

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.
