Caravaglio Corinto Nero "Nero du Munti" 2014
Just off the coast of Sicily, the Aeolian Islands archipelago is a World Heritage Site and pure paradise, created by ancient volcanoes and carved by Mediterranean winds. This wine is a journey to the islands of Salina and Lipari (each basically 15 square miles of volcano sticking up out of the ocean), and a sampling of truly outstanding Italian wine.

Definitely worth the price, a different wine that is easy to drink and will shine with food. I say pinot noir like for some flavors and body, but still reminds me of brightness of Sicilian wine.
This wine definitely needs to breathe! After an hour the wine was tasty but not one of my favorites.
Sipping it as I type (one-handed, obviously). Exotic scent and taste that would pair perfectly with gamier meats or fowl. Or a cassoulet--awesome! I see it's already sold out, so let this be a lesson to you ditherers. How often do you get a chance to drink 100% pre-phylloxera Corinto Nero grown within a caldera on the Aeolian Islands? It's a first for me.
Nice wine - bright acids, dry, good fruit
I didn't know what to expect from this wine buying it, but i was pleasantly surprised. This is very much a food wine, with the dominant character being the bright fruit and acids. Interesting wine otherwise and well-balanced. I'd buy it again.
