  2. Planeta Cerasuolo di Vittoria

    2019 / 750 ml. | Item#57384

    JS9292 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Tuesday, October 5, 2021
    A fresh and crisp, dry Sicilian red, showing bright cherries and a twist of licorice with some well-crafted tannins on the medium-bodied palate. Long, clean finish with plenty of drive. Drink or hold.
    RP9090 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 18th Nov 2021
    A blend of 60% Nero d’Avola and 40% Frappato, the Planeta 2019 Cerasuolo di Vittoria is a mid-weight red with a bright and punchy bouquet. The nose is redolent of wild cherry and plum, and there is a hint of red rose. A lean and silky finish culminates with a pretty point of fresh acidity. There are light notes of toasted herb and licorice as well. Some 85,000 bottles were made. This would be nice with a typical Sicilian “melanzane mbuttunate,” or eggplant stuffed with caciocavallo cheese.
    SP9090 pts. - Wine Spectator - Oct 15, 2021
    This lithe, silky red is light- to medium-bodied, with pretty sandalwood and violet accents to the pure cherry and raspberry fruit flavors, followed by hints of loamy earth and light herbs on the finish. Nero d’Avola and Frappato. Drink now through 2024. 6,650 cases made, 1,419 cases imported.

  4. Benanti Etna Rosso

    2018 / 750 ml. | Item#56584

    JS9191 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Tuesday, December 8, 2020
    Plum, strawberry and cherry aromas and flavors with firm tannins that are chewy, yet fine grained. Needs a little time to soften. Better after 2022.
    WE8888 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/1/2020
    Aromas of red berry, truffle and moist soil form the earthy nose. On the racy palate, brisk acidity invigorates ripe black cherry, orange zest, carob and star anise alongside dusty, slightly drying tannins. Drink 2022–2028.

  5. Moraitis Sillogi White

    2020 / 750 ml. | Item#55619

    RP8888 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 8th Jul 2021
    The 2020 Sillogi White is an equal blend of Assyrtiko and Malagousia from Ysterni Vineyard, unoaked, very dry and coming in at 12.8% alcohol. Light, tasty and fresh, this is an easygoing white without a lot of concentration, but it has a perky demeanor, mouth-coating texture and a moderately crisp edge. It’s a perfect summer refresher in an affordable price range. In its youth, this is a crowd-pleaser white. Drink it on the young side for best results. I thought the Paros white was slightly better this year, but the styles and blend are different and reasonable minds might differ. There were 20,000 bottles produced.
