Under $10 Sicilian Superstars on Sale

Feudo Principi di Butera plays a special role in the modern evolution of Sicilian wine. In 1997, the estate was acquired by the Zonin family of northern Italy. They embarked on an ambitious and expensive project to establish a quality vineyard and lovingly restored the crumbling castle tower that stands at the estate’s most panoramic point. Their investment gave enormous credibility to Sicilian wine because it represented one of the first and most important commitments to the territory by non-Sicilians.
Sicily – this emerging oenological superpower that had successfully completed its own image makeover, taking it from a quantity to a quality identity – would prove to be the perfect backdrop for the Zonin family narrative.

These are great table wines from Sicily that deliver even at double the price. Think ahead for you holiday dinners or parties, these will sure to please the most discriminating palette.
