    Medium orange-tinged red. Highly expressive aromas of redcurrant, raspberry, dried flowers, spices and minerals, plus a note of iodine that screams out nerello mascalese. Silky and seamless, with an insidious sweetness to its aromatic flavors of sour red berries and minerals. Not a wine of great power or thrust but elegantly styled and satisfying; relies more on its edge of acidity than on its fine-grained tannins for structure. Lovely wine, but if I had to split hairs, it struck me as the least concentrated Passopisciaro bottling ever. Aged for 18 months in 30- and 50-hectoliter French oak barrels.

    Had Pinot Noir-like coloring but fuller bodied and really had that Etna soil chalkiness. Would have enjoyed more aeration but a real solid wine with good presence with some years ahead. Very silky and glides over the palate effortlessly. Wouldn't mind a few more bottles.
