Awesome wine. Drank over three days. First two, an elegant well balanced wine that tastes like a Nebbiolo but without heavy tannins. Has more body than a 12% al wine would suggest. Various berries esp strawberries. But in an elegant style. Really like this. I think this is a clay-stored wine? Forgot the term. Btw, not so great day three.

Probably the best red we’ve had so far in Sicily. Clean, expressive.

Great acid, super functional, wet and berry acid and tannins but light so jam is limited, really comes together, orange mandarin, super balanced

Wow, wonderfully interesting. Greenish and grassy, solid tannic structure, bright. Mineral, berry, cranberry, tart plum, resinous; slightly saline/seaweed/chlorophyll.
