Franchetti–Passopisciaro 2016 Contrada C Nerello Mascalese (Terre Siciliane)

This has a shy nose that eventually reveals subtle aromas evoking dark culinary spice, crushed rock, crushed herb and a whiff of blue flower. The palate boasts the firm's trademark of structure and weightless elegance, delivering red cherry, wild strawberry, orange zest, star anise and salty minerals alongside polished tannins. It's well balanced, with bright acidity. Drink 2021–2028. Kerin O’Keefe
