Sicily: The Challenge of Turning Great Potential Into Great Wines

At about 25,700 square kilometers (17,100 miles), Sicily is the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, a veritable country in its own right and blessed with ideal winemaking conditions, such as myriad exposures, altitudes, soils and grape varieties, plenty of sunlight and low rainfall. It is hardly surprising that Carricante, Catarratto, Nero d’Avola and Nerello Mascalese have rightly gained fans the world over.

2014 Centonze Frappato Vittoria ($16) 91 points

2014 Centonze Frappato Vittoria, 91 points

An absolutely knockout Frappato with intensely aromatic nose of red cherry, flowers, cinnamon and cardamom. Bright and juicy, with hints of mint complementing violet, pastille and red cherry flavors. Finishes bright and long with zingy minerality and repeating floral notes. (ID)

1953 Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage Collection

A total knock-out, Moët & Chandon’s 1953 Grand Vintage Collection possesses remarkable vinous intensity, breadth and richness, especially for a wine of its age. Scents of torrefaction, dried flowers and hazelnuts make a strong first impression, but it is the wine’s textural intensity and persistence, and the way they unfold in the glass, that prove to be utterly mesmerizing.
