Let’s take Sicily for example — in large part, Sicily is surrounded by water, so the land takes influence from the sea. In local white wines like Grillo in particular, you’ll detect a sunny, saline quality. In reds — like the ever-popular Nero d’Avola — you’ll taste plum, back cherry, and cinnamon. The flavor is full-bodied, robust, and leathery, taking environmental notes from the warm, arid region in which the stuff is grown.
