Sicily’s Mount Etna has an ancient winemaking culture, sharing Barolo’s tradition of long aging in massive old botti. The resulting delicacy and nuance evoke comparisons not only to Barolo, but to Burgundy. In fact, Jancis Robinson recently posted that Etna is “the Burgundy of the Mediterranean”.
Today, few adhere to Etna’s ancient practices. But one great estate, Calabretta, continues to make its majestic reds as in the past, releasing them only after a decade in their cellar. The wines are extraordinary—and the prices are extraordinarily low.
This will be the focus of this Saturday’s wine tasting: The beauty of Calabretta
We will be tasting three of their wines: one white, one rosé, and two reds.
This tasting is free for friends, this Saturday, October 1 from 1-3pm.
Not to be missed.
