We’re dipping into a summer feel in the middle of winter -- turning up the heat and sitting down to a light fish dinner and crisp white wine.
When he talked about Sicily, its culture and – most of all its grape and wines – Giacomo Rallo was a true, passionate Sicilian.
Another very pleasant wine experience for any-day wine drinking from the distinguished Donnafugata winery in Sicily.
Dry on the palate with medium acidity, medium-full body, and medium flavors of citrus zest, peach, pink apples, and yellow cherry. Recommended (89-91).
When people who don't love sweet wines ask for more, you know this is a particularly great vintage – and I’ve had this wine several times before. A floral hint wafts up at first. Early sips are orange, apricot and raisin, deepening to raisin and fig as it opens in the glass. Acidity and sugars are beautifully balanced. The apricot finish is just long enough.
