Wine Style Guide
Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.
Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.
Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
The 2011 Etna Rosso Guardiola 2011 displays pale ruby color with orange hues. Complex, with a balsamic note reminiscent of Mediterranean wild herbs. On the palate, most elegant, with steely focus, tannic skeleton, sinewy rather than muscular.
Pair with roasted red meat and seasoned cheese
"The 2011 Etna Rosso Guardiola is among my favorite expressions from this estate. Guardiola is one of Marco-s highest and steepest vineyards and fruit harvested here picks up beautiful balsam and floral overtones. The wine also sports a darker, thicker consistency and a slightly softer management of the tannins. Licorice and anise seed flood over the palate. Drink 2017-2030. "
The Wine Advocate
"Aromas of plums, flowers and tangerines follow through to a full body, round tannins and a gorgeous aftertaste. So many subtle flavors here. Drink or hold."
"Good full, deep red. Captivating, nuanced nose offers red cherry, redcurrant, brown spices, roast coffee, rose petal and licorice. Sweet and subtle on the palate, with a wonderful aromatic character over a firm, smoothly tannic spine. The long finish shows a lightly balsamic quality and hints of dried herbs and flinty spices. This is bigger, richer and deeper than Santo Spirito, but needs time in the cellar thanks to high but harmonious acidity.
International Wine Cellar
"Tar, rose petal and tea leaf notes accent this grippy red, offering flavors of crushed cherry, black raspberry, licorice snap and black olive. Supple and fresh, with a lasting finish. Drink now through 2024. 750 cases made."

Learn About Sicily
Sicily makes a lot o' wine. From Marsala, the sweet, fortified wine of the region, to up-and-coming Nero d'Avola, this hot and hilly region is diverse. Sicily was at one time more quantity focused than quality, and while it's still producing a great deal of wine, the quality coming out is much better. With poor soil (great for grapes), warm sunshine, little...
