Tenuta Rapitalà White Blend Sicilia IGT Piano Maltese Bianco 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Grapefruit and guava greet the nose followed by nutty, barrel aged chardonnay like tones. This is tense and focused on the nose with those tropical tones but no sense of over-ripeness or overt sweetness. Round, lush and very creamy on entry with stoney white peach and pear fruit that tense up considerably on the mid-palate revealing fairly pronounced mineral notes. The finish is a touch bitter and short, kind of clumsy but with a nice underlay of citrus pith and green pear skin. Ending with a licorice finale. Lots of wine here, will please those looking for an alternative to powerful chardonnays, though the flavor profile is quite different. 88pts

A bit of spice and leather. Very dry and dusty wine, with a bit of medicine and a chalky cherry finish.

A melange of tropical fruit on the nose: bananas, papaya and hints of mango. A bit musty and very soft on entry with an increasing acidity, but has a smooth and succinct finish.

Tenuta Rapitala, Nero D’Avola, Campo Reale, 2008, Sicilia Price - $10 per bottle (I think) This is a full body wine with lots of fruit taste. We had this with pasta and red sauce. Tannins were evident on the back pallet. After dinner with some cheese and cracker the tannins were not as apparent. We recap and will finish the bottle tomorrow.

Smooth, rich and full-bodied semi-dry chardonnay with a light fruity overtone; very frsh and crisp. Not too sweet. Great with seafood! I am not a red wine drinker and I have found this wine is substantial enough to enjoy with pretty much every entree.

The 2006 Nero drsquo;Avola Campo Reale is a fresh, vinous wine bursting with perfumed, sweet red fruit and a silky-textured, open personality. I would be hard pressed to name another wine that offers this much pleasure for the money. Anticipated maturity: 2008ndash;2009.

Therersquo;s a minty, pine --forest-like coolness at the core of this dense, chewy red. For all the concentration, it feels lifted and delicate, with lasting flavors of fresh blackberries and relaxed tannins. Serve it with spicy grilled sausage. Best Buy.

The 2007 Nero drsquo;Avola Campo Reale is a pretty, entry-level wine with attractive aromas and a generous core of sweet red fruit. This is a good choice for drinking over the next year or two.

A crisp, medium-bodied red, with bright raspberry aromas and flavors and a clean finish.

An attractive young red, with raspberry and plum aromas and flavors, a medium body and a fresh finish. A new wine from this producer. Good value in Nero drsquo;Avola. Drink now.
