Wines Red

Sicily magical place, where the scents, the colors, the flavors of a unique land dance with life, envelop you in an irresistible and inebriating atmosphere. Centuries of delicacies to be tasted slowly.

Nero d’Avola is Sicily’s oldest native grape and rightly deserving of the high acclaim which it now receives.
Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio are smaller players amongst Sicily’s leading red grapes but are key natives around Mount Etna. The two are blended to create Etna Rosso.
Cerasuolo di Vittoria, which blends Frappato and Nero d’Avola, is more famous in the south east around Ragusa.
Other red grapes include Calabrese, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah (originally from southern France).

Porcaria 2016 Passopisciaro
Last items in stock
The Passopisciaro Contrada Porcaria stands apart from the other single-vineyard bottlings in its dark, sensual fruit and masculine personality. Sweet menthol, spices and minerals develop in the glass, adding further shades of nuance to this decidedly virile, dark Nerello Mascalese. The finish is rich, dense and totally convincing.
