Contrada G IGP Tenuta di Passopisciaro 2017

After establishing the estate in 2000, Andrea has turned it into one the region’s stars, as well as a global proponent of what can be achieved on volcanic soils. As he says, “It seemed crazy to restore vineyards so high up the mountain – above, it was erupting – but I liked that they were planted so high.”

"100% Nerello Mascalese. Here we find 100 year old vines planted at 800m altitude, on a lava flow from an eruption in 1947. This presents a really extraordinary nose, redolent of lamb cooled in hay, savoury, herbal and mineral. The palate is plump and ripe, rich and creamy in structure. It combines innate power with mineral poise, finishing long. Wine Spectator's Insider Weekly - 93 Points "
