91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Sicilia Saia offers dark cherry and dried blackberry with a good amount of spice, leather and tar at the back.

The wine is aged in oak for 14 months and both its structure and persistence are well evident as a result. (ML)" (8/2016) 91 points Wine & Spirits: "Antonio Moretti, owner of Tenuta Setti Ponti in Tuscany, began buying vineyard land in Sicily in 2000.

2014 Valle dell'Acate "Tenuta Ibidini" Insolia Sicilia

Impressive for its purity and refreshing mineral qualities, Valle dell'Acate takes the Insolia varietal to a whole new level of quality.

The local name of the area where the estate is situated, Bidini, is drawn from the ancient root Bidis. This in turn referred to the name of a group of early Hellenic settlers who populated the area nearly 20 centuries ago. These wines provide a purity and authenticity ... Read More »

2015 Di Giovanna Grillo Sicilia

2012 Benanti "Rovittello" Etna Rosso

92 points Wine & Spirits: "Rovittello’s 80-year-old nerello mascalese and cappuccio vines sit at 2,460 feet on Etna’s northern slope. Black minerals wash through the wine’s cool flavors of raspberry and red plum, with a sanguine note of game. The robust tannins feel finer on the second day, unleashing the fruit flavors and guiding the wine to a long and spicy finish. Cellar this for a few years to tame the tannins, or decant and pour with seared ribeye." (6/2016) 91 points Vinous: "Moderately saturated red. Cherry, cinnamon and savory earthy aromas are lifted by a very intense floral topnote. Graceful ...Read More »
