Plenty of sliced pear and apple aromas here with a tangy, fresh tinge to the palate. Medium body. Lovely finish. Drink now. Rating: 92 James Suckling, 2019)

The 2018 Peloro Bianco is a blend of Grillo and Caricante (this estate spells the grape with one "r") with linear and sharp edges. The Grillo grapes add snappy freshness and linearity, while the Caricante is more neutral and more impactful in terms of mouthfeel. This is a fresh and zesty wine to pair with fried avocado or that fatty tuna belly sushi roll, otoro. No oak was used. Some 10,000 bottles were made. Drinking range: 2019 - 2022 Rating: 91 Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate ( 2019)

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.
