Top 10 wines in the US press9th January, 2014 by Lauren Eads
Destro Terre Siciliane Nausìca I.G.T. Bianco 2012
In a bid to “drink adventurously” Eric Asimov, writing in the New York Times, this week picked out 20 winter wines for under $20. Included in his round up is this “fragrant” 2012 white from Sicily.
He said: “The reds from Mount Etna in Sicily get most of the attention, but the whites are fascinating.
“This one, from Destro, made of both Carricante and Catarratto, is provocatively fragrant, with an almost resinous, lemon balsam aroma.
“The wine blossoms as it warms in the glass, becoming pleasantly savoury.
“It will get even better with another year of age.”
