The wine world is abuzz about the quality of wines coming from the Mount Etna area of Sicily.According to the Slow Wine Guide 2015, production in 2014 was up 40 percent compared with 2012 .The (organic) Adamo Sauvignon Blanc Costa dell'ape 2014 is a vibrant, tingling expression of the grape; and (organic) Lioy Syrah-Cabernet Sauvignon 2008, with a super Tuscan-style elegance, shows how beautifully the wines can age.At the same time as embracing these international grapes, growers are also working determinedly with indigenous grapes such as white varieties Grillo and Inzolia and ancient red varieties like Frappato and Perricone. Within this DOC, at Baglio dei Fenicotteri, Giuseppe Squasi makes four different wines with the grape, two in stainless steel and two with a few months in French barriques.Cala'mpisi 2008 is pale and lean, a wine to go with food.Sicily used to be known only for its sweet wine, Marsala, but the potential for making high-quality, premium dry wine is now being explored.
