On a blind tasting I might have pegged it for Barbaresco for it's cherry, dates, firm acidity, and wisp of rose on the nose and finish. Well integrated oak with extra toast. (18 mths in barriques ). But this is not Nebbiolo but a marvelous Nerello Mascalese with some minerality evoking the volcanic soil from where it sprang to life. Soft tannins too.

Small winery now bottling their own grapes. Interesting, must be taken in your radars.

This is an amazing wine with food. Tomatoes salt garlic. Italian food. By itself it is insane. Salty earthy volcanic. Very much terroir with very little other notes. Some aging might do this huge 14.5% wine some good.
