Details

Tenuta Aglaea (formerly under the Paolo Caciorgna label) is a tiny estate on the North side of Etna covering only 1.8 hectares across three vineyard sites; the miniscule and excellent vineyard Bocca d’Orzo (.3 ha) in the zone of Randazzo combined with Passo Cannone (1 ha) and Santo Spirito (.5 ha) in the zone of Passopisciaro. A new vineyard has also been replanted (Passo Cannone) and will be in full production in 2019. Owned by longtime wine professional Anne-Louise Mikkelssen the estate is all about meticulous attention to detail and her philosophy of having the wines be a faithful expression of the terroir. Since the departure of her one-time partner and winemaker Paolo Caciorgna, the winemaking responsibilities are now in the hands of one of Sicily’s best and brightest in Nicola Centonze (named Sicily’s best winemaker). The 2014s are the first under his tenure and they are perhaps even better renditions of the wine than ever before.

There are now four wines in the stable. All the reds are 100% Nerello Mascalese. Aglaea is the entry level – juicy, cherry fruit and dried herb. Thalia is more subtle and nuanced and then at the top of the tree is Annacare, which is the renamed n’Anticchia. This wine is the greatest expression, from the oldest vines at the highest elevations; around 900 metres. Finally there is the 100% Carricante (white) which is racy, mineral, saline and delicious.

We are delighted to welcome Anne-Louise Mikkelssen to Australia for this supper featuring the wines of TEnuta Aglaea of Sicily. This is a rare opportunity to engage with one of the rising stars of Sicily’s jewel: Mt Enta. This short supper will feature two courses from the Bellota Kitchen.
