  • 2014 Tenuta Aglaea Bianco Sicilia (carricante) $49ea:Love at first sight for me with this wine! The nose is typically Italian-slightly-neutral in that mild melon/sweet apple kinda way, but in the mouth, it is something else... Glorious texture and flavours that are rich but dry and minerally, kept refreshing with a line of acid. Slighty waxy, honeyed finish; chardonnay fans will love this diversion. Importer notes: 'Carricante benefits from a long, slow ripening so is perfectly suited to the northern, relatively cooler side of Mt Etna.'
  • 2014 Tenuta Aglaea Etna Rosso 'Thalia' (nerello mascalese) $49ea: I loved the lithe, suppleness of this wine, and the mix of subtle sweet fruit, blood/iron notes and the savoury dryness to finish. Jancis Robinson on nerello mascalese: 'Important, noble Sicilian of particular significance around Etna... fresh acidity, red-fruit flavours, gentle tannins and an obvious nobility, making it possible to drink them young yet also capable of ageing gracefully.
Pinot Shop is located in Launceston, Tasmania, Australia at 135 Paterson Street down at the river end near Cataract Gorge, Stillwater Restaurant and The Mill Providore.
