Wet stone, violets, black currants and sweet herbal notes lift up from the 2018 Nero d'Avola. This is soft-textured with a pure display of red berries and dark inner florals. It finishes savory and a bit short, yet juicy and refreshing. Drinking range: 2021 - 2024 Rating: 88 Eric Guido, (Jun 2021)

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.
