SICILIAN GOLD is the flagship brand of Lentino Enterprises, Inc. Created by Anthony J Paterno as a flavored Marsala, Sicilian Gold could be found in many unique bottles and decanters. Creating bottles molded into famous statues and the iconic triangle shape, Sicilian Gold began a revolution in wine marketing, brought attention to the little known quality of Sicilian exports and created it’s own category of well crafted Sicilian products. Many bottles and decanters sold by Paterno can still be found throughout the United States to this day.
Sicilian Gold began a brief hiatus from Production during the 1980’s and 1990’s. Anthony J. Paterno’s daughter, Michelin Paterno Lentino refused to allow the Family Label to be lost to time.
While traveling throughout Sicily in search of high quality wine vintages, the Lentino family discovered the Alessandro family in Camporeale, just outside Palermo. Another family partnership was born when in 2004, Les and Michelin Lentino established Lentino Enterprises to import and market the new Sicilian Gold. The high quality craftmanship and continual dedication to the improvement of every product has begun the renaissance of Sicilian Gold. Joined by their native varietal Sicilian cousins Donnata Nero D’Avola and Benede Cattaratto, Sicilian Gold is once again available in Chicago.

A Closer Look at the Heart of Sicilian Gold:
The Syrah grape is considered the most Sicilian of the international varieties as several experts in oenology are convinced that the name of this vine traces back to the city of Syracuse in Sicily. Sicilian Gold Syrah comes from 10 hectares of the Alessandro di Camporeale vineyards. Rigorously hand-picking the very best bunches of grapes and only in the earliest part of the day Sicilian Gold is born. Considered by many wine lovers as one of the most noteworthy and pure of the Syrah varieties produced in Sicily. The excellence of this wine is evident from its red-ruby color which is embellished by violet glints and a well-balanced tannin content, so much so that it resembles a fine Burgundy wine. Sicilian Gold has a pure, velvety feel which envelops the palate in unforgettable sensations. It is the perfect match with homemade wild boar sauce.
A wine of great elegance and personality. This wine fully represents its production area, a wide expression of Sicilian land.
The grapes that give life to Sicilian Gold Sauvignon Blanc are cultivated in the highest area of the estate in Camporeale at 490-500 meters above sea level. Hand harvested in the second half of August in small crates and a fermentation that evolves for 15 days at low temperature to exalt Sauvignon’s unique flavors.
