  • Score: 89 Vintage 2018 Wine Enthusiast White rose, apricot and Mediterranean brush aromas form the nose. The rounded palate offers yellow peach, lemon and thyme alongside bright acidity. KERIN O’KEEFE Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 89 Vintage 2018 Wine Advocate The 2018 Secca del Capo is a dry expression of the Malvasia grape that is cultivated all over this small island of Salina in the Aeolian archipelago. There is a tiny fizz to the wine, almost non-existent, when it pours from the bottle. Malvasia tends to deliver delicate floral tones of jasmine and camellia flower. The wine is dry but not completely so, because there is a point of softness or sweet creaminess in the mouth. Indeed, Malvasia grown on Salina is mostly dedicated to the production of a dessert wine called Malvasia delle Lipari, and you get faint tones of that style and that sweetness here. Drink this wine with a Thai green curry, probably within the next 18 months. Some 15,000 bottles were produced. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
