Wine AdvocateMade from grapes farmed on the highly volcanic island of Vulcano (with steaming sulfur fumaroles and beaches made of pumice stone), the 2012 Hiera is a wine that stands apart from the rest. The blend is 60% Alicante, 30% Nocera and 10% Nero d'Avola, and the quality of fruit is immediately apparent and bright. Hiera opens to a deep dark color with ripe notes of raspberry jam and cassis. Indeed, that ripeness of fruit is very well-managed; there's a fullness and generosity on hand that never feels sticky or heavy. Bright veins of acidity are woven within the thick texture of the wine. Of course I also need to acknowledge the beauty of the label design. A stunning work of modern art depicts a bright red lava flow against a darkened background.

Wine EnthusiastMade from a blend of 60% Alicante, 30% Nocera and 10% Calabrese, this wine has aromas of violet, tilled earth, mature plum, prune and black cooking spice. The soft, savory palate delivers ripe black cherry and black berry, accented by black pepper and nutmeg. It’s balanced, with velvety tannins and fresh acidity. Made for early drinking pleasure, so enjoy soon.
