Tonight, we will be tasting Nero d'Avola and three other extraordinary varietals indigenous to Sicily!

Tasca D Amerita Grillo 2014
It was 1830 when brothers Lucio and Carmelo Mastrogiovanni Tasca started making wine in the heart of Sicily. The tradition of winemaking and respect for the land has been handed down over the generations.
Pale straw yellow in color, Tasca d'Almerita Grillo offers a broad range of bright fruit aromas from crisp citrus to white peach, tangy apricots, and exotic tropical fruit like pineapple. An elegant backbone of minerality carries the wine across the palate and leads into a balanced finish.

Planeta Etna Bianco 2015 100% Carricante:
The Planeta Family has owned the estate since the 1600s! In the 1980s, three enthusiastic young Sicilians, Alessio, Francesca and Santi Planeta, began making wine working to match the extraordinarily diverse Sicilian soils with both indigenous and international varieties. Planeta wines were met with immediate critical acclaim. Etna Bianco is produced at Planeta most recently built winery in the heart of Etna viticulture spectacularly sited on the path of a lava flow from a 1566 eruption!
The grapes are hand-picked and soft pressed. Straw yellow in color, you will find aromas of almond, wild honey and ripe melon on the nose with peach, ripe mango and prickly pear on the palate. 91 Points from James Suckling

Planeta Cerasuolo di Vittoria: 60% Nero d'Avola and 40% Frappato
Intense ruby red with pink hues in the glass. The nose is fruity, reminiscent of red berries, strawberries, cherries, figs, ginger and fruit drops. Highlighting the characteristics of the terroir, the palate is supple, vibrant and wonderfully fresh, with a long finish.

Tasca Regaleali Rose 2015
Nerello Mascalese grapes give Le Rose di Regaleali fragrance, bright taste and sophistication. Fermented in steel tanks, the grapes are fermented in stainless steel tanks and partially macerated with the skins of Nero DAvola. Ready to be enjoyed immediately!
Deep salmon-pink in color, this Rose offers delicate aromas of cherry, raspberry, blackberry, and rose petals. Rich on the palate with refreshing acidity and a long, flavorful finish, this is the wine Sicilians enjoy in the summertime.

Tasca d'Almerita Lamuri 2013
Lamùri, or love in Sicilian dialect, is made entirely from hand-harvested Nero d'Avola grapes. The Tasca family credits the elegance of the final wine to the unique sandy soil and microclimate of this region. After fermentation, the wine is aged in French barriques for one year to add extra finesse.
Intense ruby-red in color, Lamuri offers lush aromas of black cherry, black fruits, vanilla, tobacco, and wild herbs. On the palate, velvety tannins and refreshing acidity make for an elegant, expressive, crowd-pleasing wine. 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
