Fattorie Romeo del Castello in Sicily

Fattorie Romeo del Castello in Sicily makes beautiful red wines from a vineyard that barely avoided the path of Mount Etna's lava (shown at the back). 

Bob's back from Sicily and he's brought with him some fantastic wines and great stories. 

Bob Hemauer, co-proprietor of Cork 'n' Bottle on East Johnson Street and a frequent guest on The Corner Table, comes on the podcast this week to talk about the exciting, food-friendly wines made on a volcanic island in the Mediterranean Sea. Winemakers like Arianna Occhipinti and Chiara Vigo from Fattorie Romeo del Castello are changing Sicily's reputation for industrial wines.

On this week's podcast, we taste the 2015 Etna Rosso "Allegracore" from Fattorie Romeo del Castello, made from the Sicilian grape nerello mascalese.
