Vollmundig fruchtig und trocken, 2 Jahre im Barrique gereift, sehr lecker — 2 months ago
Presented double-blind. Deep ruby color with a slightly watery rim; medium viscosity. No signs of particles or gas. On the nose, dark fruits, plums, cassis, some bell pepper, dry leaf tobacco, earth and some baking spice indicating the use of some barrique, probably French oak. On the palate, creme de cassis, some gravely earth, and baking spices. Medium plus tannin, medium plus acid. This is a very elegant wine. Beautiful, long, gorgeous finish. Likely a Cabernet Sauvignon-based blend. The wine was balanced and leaning more towards its structure which took me to the Old World, most likely left bank Bordeaux. Given the characteristics, I was thinking Margaux specifically. So that was my call...likely with 20+ years of age since it seems the tannins were integrating quite nicely. Turns out I got the variety and the Old World part right 😅. What a wine! I didn’t know folks were making stuff like this in Sicilia. This could stump anyone without any prior experience. Killer QPR even at $50. — 2 months ago

This 100% Ottavianello is coming from From Carovigno Brindisi, manual harvest followed by aging in French Barrique for 12 months.
The wine is light elegant, fruity and complex, it has a lovely ruby color.
The nose is full of red berries, followed by a touch of orange blossom, bing cherries, red cherries, vanilla, a touch of mint and sweet spice .
Medium body, round smooth, elegant, superb fresh acidity, mid elegant tannins, elegant fresh delicious finish.

Schwerer trockener Rotwein
Am ersten Tag sehr fruchtig,
Am 2. Tag holzig, aber nicht schwer wie ein Barrique, sondern leichtes, frisches Holz, wie wenn man durch ein Sägewerk läuft. — 2 months ago
