The Oddbins Take

You may recognise, the women adorning the bottle of Bell'Assai, she is the Sicilian Belle from Beauty & the Beast. It is a similar tale of love and overcoming adversity, except in the Sicilian version it is less of an allegory for a lesson no one quite understands (we guess... don't judge a wine by its label?) and more of a tale of conquering nature. In the Sicilian Beauty & the Beast, the beast is no man nor animal but the wild landscape of Vittoria. Bell'Assai, with the assistance of a talking teapot and a pompous carriage clock, tame Vittoria and realise the latent beauty in the region. This is in the form of a red wine from the native Frappato grape, offering a fragrant bouquet with intense flowery notes of violets and roses combined with scents of fresh red fruit (strawberries and raspberries). In the mouth it surprises with its great freshness, a perfect harmony between aroma and taste, supported by soft tannins. Relax and take a sip, seriously be our guest... be our guest, be our guest!
