Sicile & Sardaigne |
The Mediterranean islands of Italy, with their unique history and culture, offer a perfect example of an original wine heritage preserved and enhanced by winemakers who are both demanding and faithful to their tradition.
Sicily is particularly famous for the incomparable volcanic vineyards of Etna and its autochthonous Nerello, Carricante and Grecanico Dorato grapes, while Pantelleria, the small volcanic island next door, magnifies its Zibibbo grape. Sardinia, with a handful of emblematic winemakers, highlights its many traditional grape varieties that are too often forgotten. The terroirs and the winegrowers invite you to take a journey through the Mediterranean world and bear witness to the singularly lively and exciting character of Italian winegrowing.

A Zibibbo (Muscat of Alexandria) from Pantelleria - a volcanic island in the south of Sicily - made from a long maceration on the skins, vinified and aged in amphorae: a dry white marked by the minerality of the place and the energy of the terroir.
Terre Siciliane Contadino 2015 Frank Cornelissen ⎪Red⎪Nerello mascalese & other grapes⎪0,75 L⎪Sicily⎪Italy
Produced from a majority of Nerello Mascalese, complemented by other varieties (red and white) from different plots: an example of blending at its best, with integrated tannins. Very "natural".
Sardaigne Box'e Croxu 2016 Panevino ⎪Red⎪Monica, Carignan⎪0,75 L⎪Sardinia⎪Italy
A blend of press juices from different vinifications on the estate: a dense, intense red that combines the generosity of the Monica and the strength of the Carignan, a deeply "Mediterranean" wine.
