2007 Corbera "Isola d'Oro" Inzolia IGT

SKU #1042084

Considering the myriad grape varieties of Italy, it's not surprising that many of us have not even heard of more than a few of them. Chances are good, however, that we'll all be hearing a lot more about Inzolia, one of Sicily's native grapes found mainly in the region surrounding Mt. Etna. This stupendous new arrival is vibrant, fresh, balanced yet soft and luscious, and a great value

I am a superhuge fan of Oliver McCrum's imports and of Sicily's white wines. Put the two together and clock the price at less than $10 and I would buy it without tasting it. However, having tasted it, I can tell you that it rules. Strong flinty minerality and round fruit with balanced acid leads to happiness. Serious wine, not for the everyday sipper. This is a wine to bring to a tasting and act like it cost you $25.

Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages.
