Hauner Rosso Antonello Igt Salina 2006

Hauner - Sicily - Italy
A beautiful deep, luminous ruby red color with light grenade glares. The bouquet of wide-reaching character is full of sensations that range from small ripe red fruits like blackberries and blueberries to underlying notes of vanilla and cardamon which blend together with minerals like graphite. Aromatic and generous in flavor; soft and smooth to the taste leaving room for the delicate and well-bodied tannins. Warm and sunny character lends itself to drinking with long harmonious lingering floavor on the palate.

Additional Information on Hauner Rosso Antonello Igt Salina 2006

Winery: Hauner

Region: Sicily

The beautiful island of Sicily has been growing grapevines and producing wines for thousands of years, ever since the ancient Greeks first landed on its golden shores and noticed the island's true potential as a haven for quality grapes. Today, the island is one of Italy's primary wine regions, and even though over eighty percent of Sicily's grapevines are used for the production of sweet fortified wines, the remaining wineries making other wine styles are renowned around the world for their quality and character. Indeed, Sicilian wineries are famed for their ability to capture something of the sun-drenched region in their wines, and the vines they cultivate benefit enormously from the almost constant sunshine and the incredibly fertile volcanic soils which typify the island.

Country: Italy

For several decades in the mid to late twentieth century, Italy's reputation for quality wines took a fairly serious blow. This was brought about partly due to lack of regulation in certain regions, and too much regulation in others. This led to several wineries in the beautiful and highly fertile region of Tuscany making the bold move to work outside of the law, which they saw as responsible for the drop in quality in Tuscan wines. They believed that they had the expertise and the generations of experience necessary with which to make truly excellent, world class wines, and set about doing just that. These 'Super Tuscans', as they came to be known, quickly inspired the rest of Italy to improve their produce, and now, Italian wine producers in the twenty-first century are widely recognised to be amongst the best in the world. Regulation and law began to change, and wine drinkers across the globe woke up to the outstanding wines coming out of Italy, which are continuing to improve and impress to this day.
