Made by the wine legend Peter Vinding Diers, who was mentor to Peter Sisseck of Pingus, and Jacques Thienpoint of Le Pin. He also founded the Royal Tokaji Wine Company. From Syrah, we think he is making one of Sicily's very best red wines. Gorgeous, ripe, smooth, with lovely Syrah notes, but a unique and wonderful expression.

Tasting Notes

Interesting chap, Peter Vinding-Diers. After a career as a war correspondent in Vietnam, Aden, Malaya, Indonesia, Hong Kong and Nigeria, he started making wine - first in South Africa, then in Bordeaux, Brazil, Kenya of all places, Spain, Chile, and Hungary. Playing a pivotal role in revitalising regions from Graves in the '80s and Tokaj in the early '90s, he then influenced his nephew Peter Sisseck to set up the renowned Pingus in Ribera del Duero. Now he’s in Sicily, making stunning Syrah from massal selection Cote Rotie vines at his Monte Carrubo estate. Il Piccolo is his second wine and is as special as it is singularly expressive of Sicily’s volcanic terroir.
