TASCA d’ALMERITA “Mozia” 2018

(Sicily, Italy) $22

Full of delicious personality, Mozia is a fantastic white wine from the tiny island of Mozia just off the Sicilian coast. The island, one of the most important and historic Phoenician settlements in the Mediterranean, is where the color purple was first created (from sea shells). The wine Mozia has a sea spray freshness, snappy crispness, and a core of creamy peachiness. Made from the Sicilian variety grillo, Mozia comes from 40-year-old vines. I can’t think of a better (or better priced) summer white. For its part, Tasca d’Almerita, one of the top Sicilian producers (they own Regaleali), has been at the forefront of saving Sicily’s ancient indigenous varieties. (13.5% abv)
