Awesome wine. Drank over three days. First two, an elegant well balanced wine that tastes like a Nebbiolo but without heavy tannins. Has more body than a 12% al wine would suggest. Various berries esp strawberries. But in an elegant style. Really like this. I think this is a clay-stored wine? Forgot the term. Btw, not so great day three.

Probably the best red we’ve had so far in Sicily. Clean, expressive.

Wow, wonderfully interesting. Greenish and grassy, solid tannic structure, bright. Mineral, berry, cranberry, tart plum, resinous; slightly saline/seaweed/chlorophyll.

When I go to Sicily I always try to go Etna Cru. With Gaja buying some vines there I’m afraid the price of the crus won’t be accessible much longer.
