Last year at Vinitaly, while the world was still waking back up, I had the absolute luxury of coming across a tiny Italian co-op focused on sustainability and terroir, overseeing selections from 3 different regions of the country: Sicily, Puglia, and Veneto. Now, I know that co-ops come with a bit of a stigma, but these folks have something real special, and it shows in the products.

Today's offer is all sourced from the co-op's Sicilian portfolio and one of the largest organic wineries in Southern Italy, not to mention all being from the region's fantastic 2021 vintage. The QPR is honestly off the charts with these wines; organic selections, hand-harvested clusters, the aforementioned great vintage, all around really, really well made wines, clocking in under $8/bottle for this list!

If you're looking for 88- to 90-point poolside, porch pounders that will over-impress with their structure, complexity, and grace, these are your wines.

Now, I'm not going to lie, you'll be hard-pressed to find anyone in the states that know these varietals, and that's ok, I'll offer a little guidance on them for the uninitiated.

Lot 331 | 2021 Grillo Sicilia DOC
Beautiful nose of fresh-peeled grapefruit and citrus blossoms with an herbaceous halo. The entry is expertly weighted, clean, and dry with noticeable saline qualities framed around medium+ grapefruited acidity sliced through by stoney minerality accented by dried thyme. The finish retains the wine’s dry character resonating with grapefruit pith umami accented by dried herb bouquet. Grillo is a perfect wine for fans of Pinot Grigio.

Lot 332 | 2021 Inzolia Terre Siciliane IGT
Wonderfully herbaceous on the nose with interwoven citrus and nutty characters, it’s not hard to see why this grape is used in Marsala wine production. In a dry white expression, the palate is deftly weighted with medium acidity and further citrus/nutty weaving, bringing to mind the early notes of a Marsala on the palate, but never going full bore into the rich, nutty, viscous, sweet expressions associated with Marsala wines. The finish is clean and dry, showcasing wet stone minerality on the exit. I find Inzolia to be best for fans of Grüner Veltliner or Sauvignon Blanc.

Lot 334 | 2021 Zibibbo Terre Siciliane IGT
Also known as Muscat of Alexandria, don’t be fooled by the flowery nose, this is a bone-dry expression of this grape; honeysuckle, orange blossoms, lychee, white flowers and honey make for an incredibly expressive nose. The entry is surprisingly dry with mandarin orange, further honey and lychee introducing fresh-sliced peach amidst medium+ acidity. The finish is mineral-driven and dry, demanding another sip. This kind of expressiveness and complexity is excellent for fans of dry-styled Rieslings.

QPR ALERT: All three selections (4 bottles of each) in a 12-bottle mixed case for $89, again, under $8/bottle.

These wines are in-stock and ready to ship, not to mention they are currently showing incredibly well - I recommend tasting these closer to cellar temp than fridge cold to really capture their full spectrum.

Please do not purchase in-stock and future wines on the same order as it will delay shipping until the future wine arrives.
