About this Wine

Italy's finest expression of Syrah. This is gorgeous, classy, old-school in some ways - so that if you like Bordeaux, Rhone and Burgundy, you would enjoy this, yet it expresses the joy of Sicily. The terroir is in Melilli, an extinct volcano - south of Etna - with limestone, marine fossils. Made by wine legend Peter Vinding-Diers.

Tasting notes

Around this time last year I visited Peter, of Danish descent, and Susie, his English wife, who is another legend, and his rock, for lunch and to see and understand where these amazing wines were coming from.  For my visit they'd opened 8 of their wines he'd made. I was asked to choose one for lunch. No pressure. Luckily they were all brilliant. Not just one of them but pretty much all of them eclipsed the quality of all Sicilian reds I'd had before.
