Revered Regions: Sicily 6 pack
An island famed for its scenic landscape and delicious produce, Sicily has only recently become known as an iconic wine region. With a history of ‘bulk’ wine production; where juice was shipped in tankers to ‘fill out’ lighter red wines on mainland Italy, some years ago local producers decided to modernize the image of Sicilian wines, by reducing bulk wine production and focusing on indigenous varieties and more thoughtful production.
This pack will showcase the best of the region - Experience the celebrated wines of Europe’s highest and most active volcano, Mount Etna, often considered to have a ‘miracle’ terroir, its rich volcanic soil producing wines of elegance and esteem. Moving on to the coastal and inland sites of Porto Palo and Acate, examining perfumed grillo, textured carricante and soft silky frappatto.
