Sachia Perricone di Caruso & Minnini

While we are trying to catch up on the wines we have tasted in the past month or so, (sorry we've been studying!) an interesting wine to mention its Perricone. During our wine tasting adventure at Mulino Stucky, the owner of Caruso & Minini, Stefano Caruso caught my eye when i saw the rare bottle. Indigenous to Sicily and now made mainly in the Marsala region, since it almost went extinct, I was anxious to see what it was like. High in alcohol and refined in both stainless steel and barrique (although only for a short time) its relatively fresh and has has a ruby to garnet color and your tipical red wines smells: viola, blueberries, rasberries, blackberries and cherries with a bit of sicilian spice and minerality. Nicely structured and persistant with a rich sapidity and freshness.
Other wines by this agency include Isula, a Cataratto, Inzolia and Chardonnay mix; Cutaja , a meritage of Nero d'Avola, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon; and Timpone, which is pure Grillo.
Vote 85/100

Più di un mese fà al Mulino Stucky (vedi post) ho avuto il piacere di conoscere il proprietario Stefano Caruso dell'azienda vinicola Caruso & Minini di Marsala. Durante la degustazione mi impressionava l'eleganza e la gentilezza dei suoi modi e mi trasmetteva interesse e pace. Abbiamo assaggiato numerosi vini tra cui l'Isula uvaggio di Cataratto, Inzolia, Chardonnay; Cutaja uvaggio di Nero d'Avola, Syrah e Cabernet Sauvignon; Il Timpone Grillo in purezza rimanendo sbalorditi dai raffinati profumi e sapori nel loro amalgama.
Ma vorrei soffermarmi su un altro vino Il Sachia Perricone da uve Perricone. Questo vitigno ormai quasi scomparso è vinificato dall'azienza in un cru di 2.1 ettari ed esprime e condensa in se stesso il grido di potenza e libertà della Sicilia.
Alcuni numeri possono render meglio l'impeto del vino: titolo alcolometrico 13,8 per un estratto secco che arriva ia 36,5 gr/l praticamente la forza di un Amarone delle nostre parti. Solamente che il vino fa solo acciaio(6 mesi) e affinamento in bottiglia (2-4 mesi).
Passando all'analisi organolettica direi color rubino profondo con riflessi violacei, floreale di viola e fruttato di more, ribes, ciliegie. Speziato e minerale. Ottima la struttura e la persistenza in bocca, ricco di feschezza e sapidità.
Grazie Sicilia.
Voto 85/100

Anche a me e' piaciuto tanto questo vino.

ps -- I think I'm STILL drunk. Or, more accurately, "crunk."

I am a Perricone by birth. My grandparents, on both sides, came from Italy (dad- Palermo, Sicily early 1900’s mom-Abruzzi-early 1920’s).
My dad’s dad had a still where he made his own wine hidden somewhere on Long Island NY. The feds came one day to try to find it and my granddad all of a sudden forgot what little English he knew. So there is a wine named for the family and now I know why I am a little fruity. Is Perricone wine available in USA?
