a classic wine that fully expresses the terroir and its exceptional properties derived from its location around Etna, the most important active volcano in Europe. It boasts exceptional clarity and an admirably austere and indomitable character, combined perfectly with an exquisite taste profile.

Sicily's wine history dates back to ancient Greece, when the tiny island was a Hellenic colony. Though most famous for its sweet Marsala produced on the western side of the isle, Sicily also features a broad pallette of exciting dry wines made from native varietals that hail from its eastern coastal region. Carricante, for example, is a white wine grape that's indigineous to the black ashen soils of Italy's largest active volcano, Mt. Etna. Nero d'Avola is Sicily's most famous red wine grape, though Nerello Mascalese grown further north of Avola in the Catania region may give it a run for its money in the near future. No matter what kind of wine you enjoy, Sicily's got something that will kick-start your palate.
