TASTING NOTES

The Caravaglio winery is located on the island of Salina, in the Aeolian archipelago. Since 1999, it has been producing local wines that are able to express the special character of this splendid region. The vineyards of the Caravaglio enterprise are all planted with local varieties of grape, amongst which, first and foremost, is the Malvasia delle Lipari, a grape normally used for the production of sweet wines; however, Nino Caravaglio has been a pioneer here, creating a dry wine from it since 2010. Occhio di Terra is a monovarietal wine made from Malvasia grapes which are fermented and macerated in stainless steel. The wine, from grapes grown on various plots of land overlooking the sea on the island of Salina, remain in contact with their skins for several days, thus acquiring their captivating intensely golden colour. Its aromas are beguiling, refined, and intense: reminiscent of ripe fruit such as apricots and yellow peaches followed by white flowers, citrus fruit, and aromatic herbs. These notes are accompanied by hints of elegant saline minerality. On the palate, the wine has a pleasant softness and is embracing and well supported by the inherent fresh salinity of this land. The fruity aromas are reflected in the taste, and the delicate tannin offers a velvety finish. This wine is ideal to accompany fish starters and grilled swordfish. Read more Read less
