2022 Le Casematte

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

These wines are always a joy to drink, aromas of wild flowers, white peach and citrus fruit. In the mouth there is a juiciness to the fruit, peach and nectarine flesh, back notes of aromatic herbs and flowers and then a drive of citrus adds a delicious acid lift to the finish. L&S (Mar 2023)

*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles of wine (or 9 litre equivalent) or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified (4.5 litres) to get the discounted 'case price' for each bottle.

Ripe green fruits, sour-fresh citrus on the palate, quite broad in the mouth. Impressive depth of fruit and a long nutty green-fruited finish. Drinking range: 2023 - 2025 Rating: 16.5 Julia Harding MW, (Apr 2023)

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.
