Franchetti–Passopisciaro 2018 Contrada R Nerello Mascalese (Terre Siciliane)

#29 Enthusiast 100 2020
Return to List

Fragrant and loaded with finesse, this gorgeous red stuns with captivating scents of pressed rose, violet, red berry, white pepper as well as whiffs of smoke and balsamic notes. Boasting extreme elegance and intensity, the smooth, delicious palate delivers strawberry jelly, raspberry compote, cinnamon and flinty mineral framed in smooth, silky tannins. Made from some of the highest vineyards on Mount Etna and 100-year-old vines, it's endowed with bright acidity that keeps it superbly balanced. Drink through 2030. Kerin O’Keefe
