Sicily’s Wines Rising Stars on Wine Spectator

Sicily’s Wines Protagonist of Wine Spectator Oct. 2014 (by Alison Napjus)

 Sicily, Italy’s largest and most southerly island, is a place of many distinctions. Its wines, climate and geography, its people and more. Yet these diverse strands weave an alluring tapestry, and help make Sicily one of Italy’s most exciting wine regions today.

Cover Story

Sicily’s Wine Renaissance - A combination of local culture and modern innovation is transforming the Medi­terranean’s largest island into a winemaking hot spot. From Mount Etna’s elegant reds based on the native Nerello Mascalese grape to crowd-pleasing Chardonnays, diversity and quality abound.

Sicily  in February is verdant and lush. The grapevines emerging from their winter hibernation, are separated by rows of rich green grass and bright yellow flowers. The island’s southern coast is dotted with vibrant orange groves and the pale pink of almond trees bloom. Even the stark volcanic crags of Mount Etna  are softened by wild flowers mixed with the silvery-green of olive trees

 In summer, all this changes. Temperatures rise to the 90s, the sun beats down for 10 to 12 hours each day, and the rainfall that is so regular during the winter drops to almost nothing on average, approximately 0.1 inches in the months of July and August.

“Sicily is really a land of contrasts”, remarks Laurent de la Gatinais, president of his family Rapitalå estate. This general statement is a common refrain when referring to the many aspects of Italy’s largest and most southerly island and-its wines, climate and geography, its people and more. Yet these diverse strands weave an alluring tapestry, and help make Sicily one of Europe’s  most distinctive and and exciting wine regions today.
