Pacina Wines

Maria Borsa was showing off her family's wines at Vinovore in Silverlake this week.
Pacina grows grapes, olives and grains and the has been making wines for 6 generations just outside of Siena, Italy.

These are organic, unfiltered, wines that have a fruity-funky nose and intricately tasty layers that never lose the flavors of the grapes they were made from.
The White I tried was their 2016 La Cerretina, a Tascona Bianco. It had a light sparkling presence with fruit and earth dancing together. It would be hard to stop drinking this one.
The 2014 La Malena is made from 70% Syrah and 30% Ciliegiolo. It's a light red Tascano that had much the same characteristics as the Bianco but richer with more depth. Tantalizing and persuasive.


Il Secundo 2017 is 95% Sangiovese and 5% Ciliegiolo. A more mature full flavored red to pair with food.


Pacina 2013 is also 95% Sangiovese and 5% Ciliegiolo and aged for 14 months in Oak casks. You can taste layers of woodiness interwoven with the grapes.










All were delicious and made a strong impression on me. I look forward to enjoying their wines again soon.
