Franchetti 2017 Red (Terre Siciliane)
A blend of Petit Verdot and Cesanese d'Affile, this opens with aromas of Mediterranean brush, toasted oak, mature black plum and exotic spice. The densely concentrated, jammy palate offers dried blackberry, coconut, orange zest and tobacco alongside enveloping, fine-grained tannins. Drink through 2028. Kerin O’Keefe

All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5-8 samples. Reviewers may know general information about a flight to provide context—vintage, variety or appellation—but never the producer or retail price of any given selection. When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.
