One bottle each 2016 Tenuta di Fessina Erse Etna Bianco Carricante from Etna Bianco Sicily 93 Points James Suckling Mangoes and papaya meet dried apricots, pineapple and undertones of cloves and spieces. medium to full bodied with bright acidity and layers of beautiful spicey stone fruit that give a fleshy but refined and elegant impression. 2019 Nardello Soave Classico Meridies Garganega from Veneto A classic, pure Soave with outstanding definition; it is a joy to drink. Overall, of course, the terroir is volcanic…which is one reason the hills of the “Soave Classico” can produce such magical wines 2015 Musto Carmelitano Serra del Prete Aglianico del Vulture Aglianico from Basilicata Complex yet elegant; black cherries and plums mix with licorice and incense. Tannins are refined; long finish. 2018 La Sibilla Campi Flegrei Piedirosso 2018 Piedirosso from Campania The soil is so sandy here that the vines can be planted directly in it, without being grafted to other rootstock. Since European viticulture was wiped out by the phylloxera insect in the last half of the nineteenth century, there is great nostalgia for the Golden Age of wine made from ungrafted vines. Here is a very rare opportunity for you to taste for yourself.
