Sip of the Day

Day #363 of the year.

Feudo Maccari Saia Sicilia DOC

Today is “National Call a Friend Day”, even though without realizing it, my friends and I have been doing this for years. No matter where we are in the world, we take an hour to phone or video chat together with (of course) a glass of vino in hand. My wine of choice today is a delicious Nero d’Avola from producer Feudo Maccari. This Sicilian gem has a great balance of floral notes where the orange peel is well integrated with spiced notes of Indian herbs. On the palate, it is fresh, complex, and persistent. A perfect match for a lively conversation!

Intense ruby red color. The bouquet exhibits a great balance between the floral notes where the orange peel is well integrated with spiced notes of Indian herbs. On the palate, it is fresh, complex, and persistent. The acidic components are significant and give the wine a long life in the bottle.
