The wine reveals aromas of strawberry, black plum and cherry combined with a spicier side: clove, pepper and some licorice. Sicily's famous volcanic soils contribute further savoury notes along with an unmistakable stony minerality. The overall effect is a complex, balanced red.
The wine is medium-bodied with firm tannins that feel a bit dusty in the finish. There's a core of red fruit, supported by a lively acidity that persists through the dry, grippy finish. Like many Italian wines, this is an example of a wine that is (even) more enjoyable when paired with food.
Match with simple classics like homemade amatriciana or pair with anything you’d serve with BBQ sauce, from ribs to pulled pork.
A sweet, almost caramel-like aroma reminiscent of your favourite juicy, red berry.
Fresh B.C. cherries out of the back of a truck, all eaten before you can get them home!
Sweet, fruity and sensual, similar stone fruit aromas to a peach, but without the 'fuzziness.'
A whiff of a freshly used pepper grinder - spicy and fresh, without the itchy nose.
From milk to dark chocolate, this aroma is irresistible, just like that bar hidden in your drawer.
2022 - 2025
Musìta is located in Trapani, a province in southwestern Sicily, and just like the area, the winery is steeped in history. In the late 1800s Don Ignazio Ardagna planted his first vines of Catarratto on the slopes of Musìta, a hill so named by the Arabs. For generations, the family brought their grapes to the local cooperative, but the dream of producing wine that truly expressed the potential of the vineyards slowly took hold. This dream became a reality in 2004, when the family purchased a defunct cooperative winemaking facility. They carefully restored and modernized it to start wine production under their own label. Today, the fifth generation of the Ardagna family owns around 50 hectares of vineyards, planted with indigenous varieties such as Cataratto, Grillo and Nero d’Avola, as well as international grapes such as Chardonnay and Syrah.
Musìta focuses on retaining elegance and freshness in the wine (no mean feat considering the hot, dry Sicilian climate). This organically-farmed Syrah is packed with varietal character and has a distinctly Italian charm. Serve this wine at 18 ºC and drink between now and 2026.
