Top five wines to pair with Barry White

4. Tenuta di Aglaea Talía

From old bush vines in the Comune di Castiglione di Sicilia e Randazzo on Etna comes this subtle yet powerful varietal Nerello Mascalese. We won’t dwell on the ejaculatory significance of Etna, rather on the finer mythological significance of the winery name. Aglaea is the youngest of the Three Graces or Charities, and daughters of Zeus. She was the goddess of beauty, splendour, glory, magnificence and adornment and, the myth goes, often acted as messenger to Aphrodite, the goddess of love – who was married to Hephaestus, the volcano god.

Demonstrating that Barry White wines don’t have to be deep, dark, brooding affairs, this wine gives beguiling dry strawberry, floral and herbal notes, with a firm body yet gentle tannins.
