Plenty of iodine and volcanic ash on the nose with preserved lemon and dried cranberries...juicy and mineral on the palate with a medium body and silky tannins. Distinct ash and olive stones at the finish.
...balanced fruit that shows crisp acidity and polished tannins...maintains its elegance, but it also shows distinctive notes of its territory, which in Sicily are manifested as black fruit, Mediterranean herb, wild fennel, scorched earth, toasted almond and black olive.
...explodes from the glass with masses of crushed stone, blackberries, cherries, wild herbs and hints of brown sugar...silky in texture with depths of sapid dark fruits complemented by sweet spice and pretty violet florals that form toward the close...tapers off long to mineral-tinged wild berries framed by subtle tannins.
Mature dark-skinned fruit, Mediterranean brush and spice notes mingle together in the glass. The full-bodied, elegantly structured palate offers prune steeped in spirits, vanilla, carob and licorice alongside velvety, enveloping tannins...closes on a coffee bean note.
...finely knit red, with silky tannins defining the flavors of pureed raspberry, crushed black cherry, pretty dried thyme and licorice notes, showing a subtle, minerally tang of iron. Medium- to full-bodied and elegant, with a lingering finish of spice box and graphite.
