Had a really bad experience with a few wines that I bought and wanted to share and warn. Also it has been a while since I have pretended to be a wine expert, but for these wines no expertise was needed. We ended up dumping most of the 6 bottles that we got. The winery is Antichi Vini di Sicilia and they have a lineup of whites and reds that are all Sicilian. They were having a tasting at the wine shop on base and I kind of felt bad for them as I was looking at other wines. No one was giving them the time of day and that should have been a warning. haha. I went over and started up a conversation and then started trying some wine. Honestly the first red they gave me was really bad, but of course I didn’t say anything like that to them and moved to the next. One of the reds was semi good, but over priced for the quality. I ended buying one of those reds and filled the rest of the 6 with Rosato and whites because I can always use the whites for cooking if needed too. You might be wondering why I got 6… its because they offered me a cool wooden wine box if I did… such a sucker.
The wines definitely had a flaw. You could smell it, see it, and definitely taste it. Personally I think that they were trying to push them out the door because they knew that too. Just wanted to let people know to look out for these wines. Hopefully they just brought a bad batch for their sake, but beware. And going back to my old wine rating system these wines definitely fall into the Mini Donkey category! Oh well… at least I have my wine box to put some good wines into.
