Cellar for up to 9 years. No need to decant before serving.

Lipari island off the north coast of Sicily is an ideal spot to produce delicious wines from classic local grape varieties like Malvasia delle Lipari and Carricante. Tenuta di Castellaro is the island’s largest winery and was founded in 2013 by Massimo Lentsch, an entrepreneur who fell in love with Lipari while on holiday here. The estate now consists of 20 acres spread across the island planted on rich volcanic soils.

This characterful red is made from 100% Corinto Nero, an indigenous grape which was introduced on Lipari by the Phoenicians and is widely grown in other parts of Greece and Turkey. The grapes for this wine are planted at 350 metres above sea level and are farmed organically and picked by hand. Once in the winery the fruit is fermented on the skins in oak barrels and then left to mature for 12 months in 500 litre barrels followed by another 12 months in the bottle.

Charming red cherry, redcurrant and savoury notes of dried herbs define the nose while the palate offers refined tannins, a medium body, and a long, elegant finish seasoned with delicate spice, licorice and white pepper. A great gastronomic wine to pair with Italian charcuterie like salami and prosciutto, mature cheeses, tomato-based pastas or pizzas.
