Description

For November I propose a Pinot Noir grown on the slopes of Mount Etna in Sicily, by our supplier and friend Barone Arnaldo Spitaleri of Muglia.

I met the current Barone Arnaldo Spitaleri of Muglia at Prowein last year and again at the London Wine Fair early this year. I am always stunned by the outstanding quality and value of their wines.

Sant’Elia is 100% Pinot Noir, grown on the Etna black volcanic sand soil and on dry stone walls terraces 800-1200 meters above sea level.

On the nose it is intense and complex with scents of dark fruit, gravelly minerals and soil, spices, vanilla, leather, tobacco &  liquorice. All those sensations are also present on the palate accompanied by a warm, smooth, balanced long finish. If you like a really good Burgundy then try this at a fraction of the usual price. You will not be disappointed.

This wine is perfect paired with duck and other game birds, casseroles, stews such as beef bourguignon, chicken or mushrooms in creamy sauce. I have recently served the Sant’Elia with a chicken, garlic and cream recipe – see link below – fantastic!
