INTERNATIONAL TREBICCHIERI: Il Musmeci Bianco 2012 vintage, “a finish with extraordinary flavorful energy and a sharpish close. A great wine”. By Giulia Sampognaro
Tenuta di Fessina_ This label has just come on the market, but has already won us over. It is from a century-old bush-trained vineyard of carricante grapes in Milo, a village on the south slope of Mount Etna. The nose starts slow on a slightly smoky note, then mulberry and citrus zest aromas appear. On the palate, it has rhythmic, mouth-filling development, a finish with extraordinary flavorful energy and a sharpish close. A great wine. Pairing: 8½_ Not a particularly structured wine, and perhaps that is why it pairs well with the salad. Very pleasant notes of orange blossoms emerge from the pairing, which is both balanced and mouth-filling”.
