2020 Bianco Le Casematte

Grapes Grillo, Carricante
Colour White
Origin Italy, Sicily
District IGP Terre Sicilliane
ABV 13%

This wine has now graduated to DOC Sicilia status in this 15,000-bottle edition. The Le Casematte 2020 Sicilia Bianco Peloro is a seafood-friendly blend of 65% Grillo and 35% Caricante (the grape name is spelled with one "r" by this estate). With chalky sensations and lots of pretty citrus fruit and stone fruit, the wine is lean-bodied and refreshingly bright with long mineral notes on the close. You get terrific value. Drinking range: 2021 - 2023 Rating: 91 Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate ( (Nov 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.
