Palazzi from Sicily

Aug. 18

After the big typhoon passed, it was a terrible hot day today.




1st Palazzi Catarratto 2018 920 yen  New Arrivals

It is new arrivals from Sicily Italia.

It is made from 100% Catarratto, which is a local grape in the island.

You can find a lot of simple style Italy wines under 1000 yen.

However, this one absolutely has an additional high quality, I think.

I like fresh fruits, nice acidity and fine minerals.

The taste is very clean and natural.

It has all of the tastes that I want for daily white wine.

I think it is a kind of Marquis de Beau Rond in Italy.



2nd Palazzi Nero D’Avola 2017 920 yen  New Arrivals

The red is made from 100% Nero D’Avola grown in Sicily.

Nero D’Avola is a local grape in south Italy.

The grape ordinary becomes the dark and full-bodied style.

However, it is a light, cool and elegant style red wine.

I felt floral ripe black cherry and plum fruits flavors with a hint of spice.

I also felt soft tannins, gentle acidity.

I tasted this with the near ice temperature.

It was very, very tasty!!

I think it is a kind of Marquis de Beau Rond in Italy, too.
