BENANTI 04 SERRA CONTESSA
BENANTI 2004 SERRA DELLA CONTESSA

WINE ADVOCATE 93 POINTS - "Benanti's 2004 Serra della Contessa is a showstopper. This blend of 80% Nerello Mascalese and 20% Nerello Cappuccio is made Read More...
from 100-year old vines, many of which date to pre-phylloxera times. The wine is fermented in oak vats, then racked into French oak barrels for aging. It reveals notable intensity and purity in its expressive layers of ripe fruit, leather, minerals, menthol, licorice and smoke. Supple, finessed tannins frame the gorgeous finish. Today the wine is quite primary but in time it will likely develop into an ethereal beauty. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2016."

Last month, Salvino Benanti visited Hi-Time to share his wines and passion for the wines of Mount Etna. The Benanti’s have long recognized that the minerality and climate from Mount Etna made the indigenous grapes from the island capable of greatness. In fact, they have been growing grapes in this land of extremes since the late 1890s and their Nerello Mascalese vines are more than 100 years old! We are excited to share the 2004 Serra Della Contessa from the cellars of Benanti. This wine is balanced, full of character and drinking beautifully right now.

We are spellbound by the complexity of this perfectly aged wine from the historic Benanti family estate. This cuvee is composed primarily of Nerello Mascalese with a small amount of Nerello Cappuccio. Think of a hypothetical cross of Burgundian Pinot Noir and Nebbiolo, which is vibrant and fresh at 11 years of age. As Salvino says, "These are elegant wines for elegant food and elegant people." We agree wholeheartedly and know our customers will enjoy this tremendous food wine, which pairs exceptionally well with lamb, pork dishes, sausage or even pizza!

face of the volcano at 700 meters above sea level. Rovittello is a gorgeous wine with a long aging future ahead. There’s a degree of richness and plumpness that is rare to find in the generally austere red wines from Etna. Black cherry and black currants are backed by light touches of cinnamon and clove (it ages up to 12 months in used oak). Drink 2015-2026."

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.
