2018 Le Casematte "Peloro" Bianco Sicila

SKU #1426044 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2018 Peloro Bianco is a blend of Grillo and Caricante (this estate spells the grape with one "r") with linear and sharp edges. The Grillo grapes add snappy freshness and linearity, while the Caricante is more neutral and more impactful in terms of mouthfeel. This is a fresh and zesty wine to pair with fried avocado or that fatty tuna belly sushi roll, otoro. No oak was used. (ML)  (10/2019)

Very refreshingly light and almost "vivace" on the palate (reminded me of a Txacoli). An intriguing note of salinity, does entice one to a seafood platter! Think, hot weather, sand and mezze food galore!

Most all of my colleagues and friends know that I love Mediterranean whites. And most of them know it's because I love crisp white wines with salty minerality. That's precisely why I love this wine. Both Grillo and Carricante are characteristically mineral driven, Grillo perhaps to a lesser extent with a little more fruit. As a blend of the two, this wine tastes like a someone scooped a generous splash of the Mediterranean sea right into the bottle, followed by a little sprinkle of local herbs. Perfect for pairing with some of my favorite briny foods--small fish, capers, olives and cured meats--drink this wine with any of these and you'll know just why I love these wines.

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world.
