Passopisciaro IGT Tenuta di Passopisciaro 2009

Very pretty, dark, limpid ruby this has a lovely purity from the outset, a slightly camphorous nose also revealing cherries and red fruit compote. This is a wine which will rejuvenate a listless, jaded or cynical palate, lifted, unusually for a red, by hints of elderflower. We taste, knowing that we are on an island to the southwest of Italy yet there are intermittent, lacy traces of burgundy here though a persistent, very particular minerality takes us back to its smoky origins. This is very original, characterful and very fine with an underlying structure that packs quite a punch.

"Passopisciaro comes from the indigenous Nerello Mascalese grape. In the Alcantara Valley, Nerello has a very particular way of ripening completely which allows for real diversity amongst vintages."
