Getting there, and being all happy about it!
Robert Parker Wine Advocate chooses the Eruzione 1614 Carricante 2017 in the top 10 discoveries of year 2019.
This is a blend of 90% Carricante that has been enhanced with 10% Riesling. It is amazing how much range, dimension, depth and overall definition that small percentage of Riesling brings to the table. These two grapes find remarkable harmony in the 2017 Sicilia Carricante Eruzione 1614. The clarity and precise nature of those linear and almost-salty mineral notes found in Carricante are embellished and reinforced by subtle tones of petrol, ginger and beeswax that come from the Riesling. Together, these grapes make for beautiful and impactful aromatic intensity. (93+ pt.)
