2016 Caravaglio Malvasia di Salina Bianco Secco Sicilia

SKU #1321437 91 points Vinous

 Bright straw-yellow. Apricot, aromatic herbs and white flowers on the nose. Juicy, spicy and nicely delineated; not a fleshy wine but very clean and classically dry, with bright citrus, ginger and macerated sage and rosemary flavors. Finishes long and saline with a persistent, fresh lemon-limey character. Lots of flavor and only 12.5% alcohol; this is a blend of roughly 90% Malvasia di Lipari and 10% Corinto Nero. (ID)  (9/2017)

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. 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. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world.
