Passopisciaro Contrada Guardiola Sicilia Nerello Mascalese 2014

$64.99

Vinous, 88 Points: Saturated ruby with inky purple tinges. Very peppery, medicinal aromas of blueberry, cocoa, coffee, tobacco leaf and herbs on the tight nose. Then slightly austere and taut in the mouth too, offering a rigid, tough mouthfeel to the chocolaty and very spicy flavors of dark berries, herbs and licorice. Finishes with serious, tongue-dusting tannins and a violet note. Strikes me as an all-around darker wine (in color, fruit aromas and flavors) than the other 2014 Passopisciaro wines.

This is going to be REALLY good with a few years of age on it.

A slightly more modern approach to Etna. More of the volcanic, charred earth component than the Terre Nere we drink before it.

The most structured and complex of the flight. Expresses more grip. Sandalwood, moving toward black fruit, earth, meaty, violets, cocoa, way more mineral core to this. Very juicy and concentrated. Yes please.
