Ep. 208 --ITALIAN-- Attilio Scienza (VIA Chief Scientist)su 4 vini siciliani

By Italian Wine Podcast

In this educational podcast recorded in Italian, Monty Waldin hosts Prof. Attilio Scienza again to talk about 4 grape varieties and related wines from Sicily. In the first part, Scienza discusses Nerello Mascalese (the variety which yields the famous Etna Rosso wines) and Frappato (grown in the areas of Noto and Vittoria)—both also part of the progeny of Sangiovese as discussed in episode 196). In the second part Scienza presents two ancient grape varieties cultivated on the islands around mainland Sicily: Zibibbo or Moscato d’Alessandria from Pantelleria, the iconic grape used to make Passito di Pantelleria and grown with the alberello training system; Malvasia di Lipari from the island of Lipari in the Eolian islands. Tune in also for a dive into the history of ancient Mediterranean viticulture and wine trade throughout the centuries in which Sicily played a huge part!
