【西西里島黃土】by Wylie

親身領教過,這個地中海國度的猛烈陽光,夏天整天的照耀著,把大地烤焗一樣,人都幾乎溶掉,只有某些原生植物可以抵擋得住,例如橄欖樹、各式橙或檸檬樹,還有就是仙人掌了。沿途見到的大部分車輛都披着黃沙,一些山路更是一片黃土,難怪大部份年代久遠的美國西部牛仔片都是在意大利取景的;有些植物和葡萄更要加蓋去防止曬傷,難怪用來釀酒的葡萄早於八月中便可收割了。

到過一個位於西西里島東南面近 Vittoria 的 Valle dell‘Acate 酒廠參觀,這個地方盛產 Nero d’avola,也是島上唯一 擁有DOCG 認証的產酒區。這些酒莊醸造葡萄酒已有多年歴史,但以往就主要是為他人作嫁衣裳,因為他們可以生產大量深色又有高單寧的葡萄酒,運往意大利北面和歐洲較冷陽光較少的産酒區用作 blending,令其他酒更有勁度和質感,他們現在已經引入溫度調節的釀酒設施了,所以可以生產一些中檔次的酒,擁有自已的品牌加以推廣。
