This is an easy-drinking expression of Nero d’Avola, but one that impresses nonetheless. The 2014 Sicilia Sedàra opens to a dark ruby and purple color with fresh aromas of cherry fruit, blackberry and dark plum. The wine is true to its varietal characteristics and you get distant notes of crushed almonds and pistachio at the back. The 2014 vintage offers very good quality at this attractive price point.

The 2013 Sicilia Anthilia is a straightforward entry white wine made with mostly Catarratto and other indigenous and international grapes. By the vibrant fragrance of the aromas and the wine’s floral intensity, the bouquet suggests Moscato-like tones of white flower, honey, and peach blossom. There’s a tangy green note of lime or wild sage and a touch of mineral dryness or talc powder on the close. Drink 2014-2015.

So youthful and bright, the 2013 Passito di Pantelleria Ben Ryé (750-milliliter) is all about those primary aromas. An enormously fragrant grape like Zibibbo has plenty of those to go around. Fresh fruit tones of nectarine and floral tones of jasmine and honeysuckle appear upfront. Passito perfumes of candied apricot, peach cobbler, zesty orange peel, Moroccan preserved lemon and honey ooze forth from the bouquet in a second wave of aromatic intensity. The mouthfeel is sticky, rich and creamy in texture. Ben Ryé delivers a big dose of Sicilian sweetness on the close.

The 2013 Contessa Entellina Chiarandà is very true to the variety. This pure expression of Chardonnay delivers Sicilian tones of candied orange peel, marzipan, toasted pistachio and honeydew melon. It o?ers impressive balance between those ripe fruit aromas and candied fruit flavors. That middle ground is what gives this medium-bodied wine its versatility and charm. Only 6,000 bottles are made.

The 2012 Passito di Pantelleria Ben Ryé is the result of a dry vintage and healthy concentration of sugars. Ben Ryé’s taste profile changes enormously when you get to these younger vintages. Passito di Pantelleria is a wine that shows a very distinct jump in evolution just a few years into its aging process. Once it makes it past that first plateau, the wine then embarks on an excruciatingly slow progression that takes decades to complete. In fact, looking back at this retrospective, I can’t say that any of the wines felt “old” or flat. Even the inaugural 1989 vintage is beaming with life. I have the same high expectations for this vintage.

A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Tannat and Nero d’Avola, the 2012 Tancredi is one of Sicily’s most consistent red wines. It is soft and luscious with plenty of dark fruit and blackberry that is followed by black olive, caper and rosemary. There are balsam notes of cola and medicinal herb although they appear as distant accents. This edition is especially ripe and well concentrated. Tancredi is aged in oak for 14 months.

The 2012 Contessa Entellina Chiarandà presents a thick and oaky style that does justice to the creamy Sicilian Chardonnay grapes used here. Chiarandà is endowed with a superior sense of richness that wraps thickly over the palate with intensity and determination. The bouquet reveals dried apricot, honey, peach, exotic fruit and toasted almond. Added complexity comes in the form of dried sage and toasted pine nut. This is a beautiful Sicilian wine that is built to last. It should continue its evolution over the next ten years.

The 2012 Sedara is an entry-level blend of mostly Nero d’Avola with Syrah, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and a few other red grapes thrown in. There’s a touch of animal fur, Band Aid or old leather but the wine is primarily focused on aromas of plush red fruit and simple blackberry. The mouthfeel is moderate in length, but the wine packs a powerful punch as it lasts on the palate, thanks to the general opulence and weight inherent within. Those animal aromas may worsen with time so this value wine is best served up quickly. Drink 2014-2015.

The 2011 Tancredi is made of Cabernet Sauvignon, Nero d’Avola, Tannat and other red grapes (in the Sicilia IGT appellation). This is a huge wine with broad shoulders and a very opulent but forthcoming style. The bouquet offers jammy blackberry and cherry liqueur with spice, cola, licorice and Spanish cedar. Tancredi shows a spectacular level of intensity with power and muscle. This vintage delivers a powerful punch. The wine needs a few more months of bottle aging to loosen up.
