James Suckling (JS) : 93 Points (2015)
A suave blend of cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc with dried blackcurrants, leather and dried elderberries. Full-bodied and structured with iron-clad tannins and a pretty backbone of refreshing acidity. Drink from 2021.

Robert Parker (RP) : 91 Points (2015)
This blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc offers power and density with lots of sound varietal purity. The 2015 Sicilia Menfi Burdese is a textured red wine with rich and succulent characteristics that flow to black fruit, spice, tar and smoke. I like the restrained intensity of this sunny and warm vintage.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 90 Points (2015)
Made with Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, this opens with aromas of dark-skinned berry, bell pepper and tilled earth. The structured palate offers black plum, white pepper, mocha and tobacco alongside smooth tannins.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 92 Points (2013)
An elegant red, delivering fine-grained tannins and a smooth, supple layering of ripe black currant and licorice snap notes, with hints of cured tobacco, olive and spice box that linger on the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2028. 2,500 cases made.

Tasting Note: Vibrant Sicilian white wine from volcanic soil, rounded, fruity and perfumed with yellow plums, white stone fruit and herbs.

Food Matching: A white wine for all seasons. Good as an aperitif, but excellent with starters based on fish and pasta.

Vinification: The grapes are picked into crates and are at once refrigerated at 8°C. After light crushing and destemming they are soft pressed. The decanted must is racked and inoculated with yeasts then ferments at 15°C for 20 days. The wine thus obtained remains on the lees until February with continuous mixing. 10% of the must is fermented in barriques. The wine is then matured in stainless steel tanks and Allier oak 225 litre barriques.

The history of Etna is studded with the historic eruptions which have shaped it. The legendary one of 1614, lasting ten years and the longest ever recorded, halted right on the border of the vineyards of Sciaranuova. A strongly evocative name for our Cru dell’Etna based on Nerello Mascalese. High black lands confer an elegant style, refined and balanced.

A rare and exclusive grape variety cultivated on only a few hectares, it is best expressed in the red sands of Vittoria, not far from the sea. An aromatic and pleasant red wine as few others, a perfect synthesis between tradition and innovation.

Bodega Aleanna Malbec 2015
On the nose the Malbec has floral scents of violets and lavender, along with the freshness of its natural acidity. The Petit Verdot lends the aromas of the ripe black berry fruits. The palate offers vanilla and toasted flavours; in the mouth it is sweet, silky and big. It is a wine of a good balance and strong tannins.
