Wines from Sicily, it's not all about Nero d'Avola.
There are delicious whites as well.
I had the pleasure to sample one of them at Slow Wine Guide 2013 tasting in New York a week ago.
The Bianco Pomice 2010 by Tenuta di Castellaro comes from the slopes of the island of Lipari. One of the Aeolian Islands.
Composed of Malvasia delle Lipari (60%) and Carricante (30%) plus others native grapes varieties (10%) it will be a good companion for oysters and clams.
Winemaker's own pick for it would be grilled sea scallops.
When tasting took place, Tenuta di Castellaro was still looking for an importer for its wines in the USA.
