The white pepper and sliced lemon character really comes through. Some thyme, too. Full body, plenty of fruit and a fresh and clean finish. Cool wine. Drink now.
The 2016 Sicilia Carricante Eruzione 1614 is comprised of 90% Carricante and 10% Riesling. This wine offers many exciting assets that distinguish it from its competition. First, that supporting presence of Riesling adds some of those benzine and resin-like aromas to the overall complexity of the bouquet. It is subtle, but the Riesling impact is well integrated within the broader texture of the wine. Second, the bouquet shows fruity tones of exotic fruit and perfumed honeydew melon, but it also offers drying mineral tones of brimstone and crushed seashell. This wine should continue to evolve over the next ten years. 92+ (ML)
Pale straw-yellow. Clean and fresh on the nose, with a lemony pineapple note that is present in the mouth too. A lovely wine with a strong mineral bite on the finish. (13% alcohol) (ID)
