Tasting Notes

A unique wine from pre-phylloxera, 100 year old Nerello Mascalese, whose yields are minute and produce less than half a bottle of wine per vine.  The result is an extraordinary achievement, particularly in 2014 which was an excellent vintage in Sicily.  Powerful, concentrated morello cherry combines with violet, raspberry coulis and impressive herbal and spicy scents.  There are full, mouthcoating tannins and incredible, wild florals alongside a crunchy acidity.  The pot-pourri, balsam, minerals and fine texture are reminiscent of good Nebbiolo but with a soft, approachable elegance. This is a wine lover’s wine which should age gracefully and provide much enjoyment in the mid-long term.  “A revelation”, according to Monica Larner (The Wine Advocate).
