  • Tasting Notes

    • On the nose, this intense wine offers distinct notes of forest floor, cocoa, cigar, warm spices and cherries in spirit. On the palate, it expresses mature tannins and a distinct acidity that is well balanced with the sweetness.

    “Dried black cherries, red plums, sage, dried orange peels and a dusting of crushed rocks create a deeply alluring bouquet as the NV (2021 Harvest) Rosso Passito opens in the glass. It's silky-smooth with racy acidity and ultra-ripe wild berry fruits accentuated by autumnal spices and traces of dark chocolate. It finishes zesty and extended with a sour cherry flourish and sweet herbal tones that resonate.”

    Bright deep red with an orange rim. The nose really opens with aeration to offer sweet red plum, dehydrated red cherry, cinnamon and raisins. Then similar flavors to the aromas lifted by juicy, harmonious acidity. Finishes very long and suave with saline nuances and repeating notes of raisins. Lovely, light on its feet dessert wine that seems less sweet than it really is thanks to its piercing acidity. One of the best sweet wines I have tasted so far this year. This is a blend of air-dried Nero d’Avola and Perricone aged in wood barrels for seven months and then twelve months in bottle prior t
