Tasting Notes

This wine is sourced from 20 small vineyards all over Salina, a volcanic island off the north coast. The nose is incredible. Full of a briny, salty, floral character, it’s spicy, inviting, and seems sweet … But no, the wine is bone dry! On the palate the wine has a supple richness, a weight that shows presence but not heaviness or fat. It begs for a plate of spaghetti con vongole (clams). (Greg St. Clair, K&L Italian wine buyer)

    Salina is one of the lesser known islands near Sicily formed by volcanic activity where grape cultivation has transpired for over five hundred years. Antonio Caravaglio produces both red and white wines and this Malvasia is truly special. It is crafted in the style of orange wines as it spends ten days on the skins and is finished in stainless steel tanks. "Occhio di Terra" is Antonio's old vines cuvee made almost entirely from Malvasia and a step up from his highly impressive "Salina". Deep golden in color, it boasts intriguing floral aromas along with whiffs of minerals and sea breeze. The palate is round, spicy and complex with lasting flavors and saline on the finish. A wonderful partner for seafood and vegetable dishes.
