So bright! Beaming sour cherry flavor - pink rose, peppercorn and crushed stones too. En excellent entry wine from one of Sicily’s shining stars.

Whoa. Good reminder to never let a good bottle got to waste. Such a balanced wine and affordable. Fresh fruit, leather, licorice, musk and minerality. One of the best vintages from Arianna.

2014 vintage - blend of frappato and nero d'avola - this has been open for a day or two before I got to it and is drinking like a rock star (not the high caffeine beverage) fruit here is sweet and ripe but balanced by awesome suggestion of minerality and some rather intense skin maceration--the tannins are intense and take some adjusting to, but wow the adjustment is wonderful and the wine rocks with beef tongue with gravy and hearty lasagna, I continue to be a huge fan of this wine

Well balanced, minimal funkiness, yet one recognizes the natural processes at work.
