We are excited to offer you this Sicilian diamond in the rough from Calabretta. Everyone has heard of the wondrous southern Italian island of Sicily, with its rugged, exquisite black Read More...
terrain housing Mt. Etna, the still quite active volcano. The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, all of the major wine publications (and the minor ones, too) have waxed poetic on the wild, raw beauty of this sunny island and their wines, with an emphasis lately on the indigenous grapes of Sicily: Nerello Mascalese - a sleek, graceful red (a grape reminiscent of Nebbiolo) and its huskier sibling Nerello Cappuccio.

The newly found fame of this viticultural area has given way for all the major players in the winebiz to settle here. While quietly, in the background is Calabretta, a winery founded in 1900, who keep on making wine just as they have done for generations. The winery is run by Massimo Calabretta and his son Massimiliano, farming approximately seven hectares of 70-80-year-old vines, many ungrafted planted on steep terraces. The Calabrettas are traditional producers, crafting their wines in a similar manner to Barolo, by long aging in massive neutral barrels (known as botti), and releasing them after extended ageing in the cellar. This is a costly service to the winemaker, a practice that is rarely done these days. The result is beautiful, and we are thankful for their effort.

In the glass, the wine is clear, medium garnet with a pinkish rim. The nose is intensely fruited and herbal with strong notes of cherries, orange peel, lavender, leather, rose petals, clove, and white truffle. The palate is equally swoon-worthy, with a Pinot Noir-like body and good acidity, sporting flavors of cherries, blackberries, cranberry, rhubarb, sage, walnut, tomato leaf and a hint of English Breakfast Tea on its fine tannins. This is a wine of tremendous character, something you could linger on and enjoy by just sniffing to uncover its many facets. We can't wait to try this wine with dishes such as osso bucco, duck, rabbit or veal.

What is the vintage of this wine? "Cala Cala" means "table wine" in Italian; and Calabretta's is a blend of four different wines of Etna Rosso. 2009 (2 different wines), 2005 and 2008... so 4 wines together! This is an exceptional buy, and something every lover of traditionally styled wines must try.

Nero d'Avola.

Colosi is a great source for value-priced whites and reds that are sure to find a place as house wines or by the glass offerings. This year the wines are a little less exciting than they have been in the past, but it is hard to argue with the quality Colosi puts into the bottle at these prices."

big wines easily, but all too often there is an element of pruniness or cooked fruit. Not here. Alessandro Cellai’s skill shows through in the freshness and brightness of the fruit that is surprising and truly rare in a wine this big. There are multiple “Tre Bicchieri” wines already in the Pisciotto lineup, but this Merlot was our favorite and took us by surprise. Be bold. Try this Merlot.

fruit and earthy morel combine with a sweetness and native aroma of terrior and fresh purple fruit. A wine of this magnitude can only be crafted from great wisdom and clarity of viticulture and enology. Incredible concentration, smooth tannin, and soft acidity combine with black cherry and blackberry fruit to create an incredible, harmonius palate with magnificent balance, complexity, and purity."

In the early 1980`s Salvatore Di Gaetano`s passion for wine drew him to a unique place: Contrada Firriato in the extraordinary countryside outside the city of Trapani. It is a land, which bears the deep and indelible signs of wine-growing and the culture of wine, nestled between Trapani`s marvelous sea and coastline and the majestic rock on which the town of Erice stands. At Firriato, respect for the naturalness of grapes, exalting their wine-making potential and enhancing the unique features of each grape variety are the rules that Salvatore Di Gaetano has strictly followed right from the beginning, harvest after harvest. These rules have allowed for the creation of a new model of winery rooted in the local territory and focused on more demanding and educated markets.

Nero d'Avola grape variety, sometimes incorrectly referred to as Calabrian (from the region of Calabria), is considered as the most typical and representative red grape of Sicily. Read More...
Incrediable ruby red color, with deep violet reflections. A intense bouquet with characteristic of red fruit and hint of vanilla. The flavor is harmonious and a great lingering finish.

A smooth and at the same time plucky wine that magnificently accompanies winter legume, multi-grain, and vegetable soups. It envelops and takes custody of the liquid aspect of soups, tender in capturing the theme of the accompaniment without ever giving the sensation of prevailing. Another intriguing possibility is that of drinking it with Mediterranean dishes that unite flavourful vegetables, herbs and cheeses such as an oven baked pasta with aubergines, parmesan, mozzerella, and aromatic herbs, or also the classic aubergine parmesan.

with roughly 65%. All from old vines 25-60 years old. And, somehow, it works. A perfectly lovely wine. Deviously drinkable, still it always clings, leaving one wondering how it delights and where do the goodies come from. In aging, the noblesse of the Etna and its remarkable terroir emerge. And the loveliness turns thoughtful and deepens, still graceful, never redundant.
