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

#32 Top 100 Cellar Selections 2018
Return to List

Subtle aromas of black-skinned berry, rose, sea breeze and wet rock shape the nose. On the elegant, full-bodied palate, velvety tannins and vibrant acidity provide structure and finesse for juicy Marasca cherry, crushed raspberry, star anise and a salty mineral note. It's full bodied but also irresistibly weightless. Drink 2021–2031. Kerin O’Keefe
