  • Colore già abbastanza evoluto, con unghia mattone.
    Naso molto buono, caldo ma delicato, finemente speziato: con frutti rossi maturi (amarene), fiori di campo, erbe officinali, zaffate di humus, leggera cannella, torroncino ed un poco di tabacco dolce.
    Bocca in linea col naso, lievemente balsamica, con tannino ben domato e levigato, acidità ancora rigogliosa e molto piacevole. Finale lungo e dolce.
    Questo Calderara Sottana sembra giungere ora alla giusta maturità, si trova ad un punto di ottimo equilibrio, pare vicino al suo apogeo.
    Da bere subito, o da attendere per scoprirne l'evoluzione nel campo dei sentori terziari (la buona acidità lascia intendere che invecchierà bene).

  • Lots of red fruit aromas with slightly sweet spice. Red cherry flavors, somewhat austere. Firm tannins all the way start-to-finish, a bit more new oak spice than I would prefer for the wonderful quality of this fruit.

  • Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio are not grapes with which I have any experience. 98% the former, 2% the latter. Tight and somewhat herbal, with a pinot funk nose for those that like such. Plenty of tannin structure that hints at long life. Tart cherry, some plum, and a puckering finish. Odd but interesting.

  • Blind tasted after 3 days open but vacuum conserved. Big red fruits with oak on the nose. Big fruit on the palate but with an inky, mineral quality (think volcanic) and very fresh despite the provenance from Sicily. Good stuff and very quaffable!

  • another one that is fairly 1-d.
    Makes it a bit boring.
