Feudo Arancio Sicilia Hekate Passito 2005

Member Review by Chris Carpita:

The nose is kind of thin, but there are some roasted almonds and apple that are sort of hiding. The mouth seems very floral, almost perfume-like. The viscosity is pretty nice.

Celebrated for its hot sunny climate, historic monuments and rich culinary tradition, Sicily has been producing rich flavoured and full-bodied wines since Greek and Roman times. Well known for its warm Mediterranean climate, hot sun, intense light, and fertile soil, Sicily has blossomed into one of the world’s most promising wine regions. Arancio cultivates its own grapes in two large estates along the windy south coast of the island. A total of 1,500 acres of estate vineyards are planted in single varietal fields in order to offer 100% single varietal wines to the final consumer. Arancio’s new state-of-the-art facilities are utilized to take full advantage of what this bountiful land has to offer. A new generation of talented and passionate Sicilian winemarkers and vineyard managers produce Arancio wines that are consistent representations of Sicilian and International varietals grown in the hot Sicilian climate. Arancio wines are well recived by all major international magazines, year after year. Read less

Caramel and hazelnut nose, and candied apples. Rich, turkish delight tones with a powdery, sugary note. Better than last time - bad bottle before?

Rich candied fruit nose. Lacking in acidity (too hot in sicily?) and a little flabby. Too sweet as a result and ahas a cough medicine taste. Very thick.
