    February 24, 2015 - Very stylish bouquet here with mint and polished wood (no new oak though). The elegant tannins speak of good viticultural practice.

    December 16, 2014 - I've never had such a concentrated dose of blackberry on the nose and palate. Almost Boone Farm like..... Fortunately after an hour of air time the fruit subsided enough for it to actually taste like Vitis Vinifera. Medium+ body, acidity, tannins; long finish (with an interesting plum and licorice taste that lingers a long time). There are some baking spice, minerality, and floral notes, but the berries dominate still. I'd advise holding off on this for another couple years to let the fruit subside some. The wine clearly has the structure to age for several years.

    November 2, 2014 - This Nerello is an excellent example of when the grape is done well. I have now had several entries from Etna DOC, and I would say this and one other were head and shoulders above the rest. Of course, this was also the most expensive. So, no bargain, but top wine from the region. Attack has tart fruit that smooths out in mid-palate with hints of berries. Finish is long with no harshness.

    February 6, 2014 - Bella sorpresa. Bevuto al ristorante "I Malavoglia" (che consiglio) a Milano.
    Naso timidissimo. In bocca elegante. Costruito per essere e non per stupire. 13 gradi e non sentirli. Classe, eleganza, terroir e mineralità.
    Da comprare a trovarlo.
