The soils are dominated by clay and the vines are kept plenty cool as they're planted at a high elevation. Fresh on the palate, this is a Sicilian wine to enjoy year-round.

Staff Pick Notes

Personally, I love nothing more than a great bottle of wine, with a great story, at a great price. This wine is made from land and vines seized from the mafia by the Italian government, and then put to better cultural use by a coop of growers. Libera Terra focuses on revitalizing native grape varieties and growing grapes organically with limited yields.

Gentle tannins and a medium body make it a versatile food wine, perfect for any pasta night. Do your part to defeat the mafia and buy a bottle!
