Passobianco Terre Siciliane Chardonnay 2018

Ming L

A Chard from Mt. Etna? Little did I know that this is one of 8 wines from Andrea Franchetti’s Mt. Etna project started in 2000.

The nose is gentle with ripe stone fruits, green apple, light toasted nuts, and light spices. Hint of smokiness as well. The palate is quite viscous for Chard with round acidity. Touch of sea breeze on the clean finish. Nice experience.

10 months in combination of cement vats and large oak barrels.

Franchetti Sicilia Petite Verdot Cesanese 2013

2 hrs in the decanter.
Gorgeous layers of juicy black and blue fruit, perfect acidity, dark smoky mineral notes and a spicy seasoning mark this wonderfully complete and well structured Sicilian Red.
I’d say this is entering its drinking window now.

Contrada S Terre Siciliane Nerello Mascalese 2013

Perfect after 9 years in bottle. Burgundian dark cherry notes, muted tannins, smooth with no mustiness. I personally still prefer a touch of added cappuccio like my fave Terre Nere. — 2 years ago

Contrada Guardiola Sicilia Nerello Mascalese 2020

Mesmerizing. Haunting characters of bramble berry, roses, lava rock, Asian spice, citrus and herbs wrapped around a fresh medium weight, lively acidity and fine tannin. Finishes on a sweet alcoholic note. — 20 days ago

Etna Nerello Mascalese 2019

Dinner at Prezza in Boston north end. Missed on my first Sicilian (we don’t have the etna Rossa anymore, so had to pivot. Nice wine, little sticky and yet Pinot-Esque. Worked well either the house fried porkchop, which is a must have btw. — 7 months ago
