This conjures to mind: happy, bright red wine. The nose is present with a strawberry, raspberry, and a just there boysenberry in addition to spice and Mediterranean herbs. The palate is light with red cherry and a light minerality and a scattering of herbs de Provence. A fantastic value. D&M Tasting Notes
In southeastern Sicily close to Ragusa, Gurrieri is perched within the Vittoria D.O.C. zone; an estate that has been farming and making exceptional wines for three generations on their family property. 18 hectares of fruit split between the extremely fertile areas of Mount Iblei and the Noto Valley is where Giovanni Gurrieri continues his father and grandfather's dream. In 1997, he started the official winery. As they also make table grapes, the estate is certified organic, and the winery has always sought to produce grapes and wines that can express the quality and character of the vineyard in complete harmony with nature. Nearby, the Hyblaean Mountains have soils rich with clay, plenty of red sand, and limestone, which combine with the breezy Mediterranean climate, adding gorgeous freshness to the local Frappato and Nero d'Avola. From a hand-harvest to little to no oak use, the final juice has seen no intervention, keeping the finished wines expressive, fresh, and full of dynamic character.
