2017 Gulfi ‘Carjcanti’ Sicilia Carricante DOC

From $42

Clear

Sweet almond paste, young peaches, hints of flint and smoke waft up from this wine. Its’ soft texture soothes as a savory display of herbal-tinged orchard fruits and salty minerals wash across the palate. There’s a lovely cut of acidity as this finished with youthful tension revealing hints of hazelnuts and inner florals.

The ancient depiction of the famous mosaic found in the Piazza Armerina, in the province of Enna, tells the legend of Eros (Cupid) and Psyche (Beauty) who, out of envy from Venus, are forced to love each other in secret. This passion gives birth to a daughter called Voluptas (Pleasure).

This represents a metaphor where Eros is Gulfi, whose love for his beautiful land (Psyche) gives birth to his wines which are an expression of pure pleasure (Voluptus).
