Suppose to be quite a famous sicily producer. Dark brick red and the smell is floral, spicy, fresh. Complex with an array of elements that can trace back to a volcanic features - mineral, wet stones, blackcurrent and dark fruit. A bit of chewing gum taste and balance. Very good and similar feel like the sena 2007 just slightly tone down. Fri night with partner out at her xmas party and me watching a wednesday. Savoury bitter sweet. Firery flower bouquet. Can feel the terrior n the place. Iodine trace, olive and tar. Licorice, balsamic and herbs

Spearmint and lily nose. Great legs. Leather, red pepper on palate. Not overly complex.

Second time around in just as many weeks. Such an interesting concept for this wine and certainly carries a shitload of interest. This however is the 2008 vintage. It's a little more tightly wound than the 10' and she's still got some very firm tannin. The 08' definitely still has its seductive nose filled with white florals, eucalypt, jubey blackberries, chambord, ginger, lavender, tobacco and balsamic. Tannin did settle ever so slightly after some time in the decant but overall was so desirable.

So funky and savoury yet so juicy. Certainly gets up there price-wise and such a structural little number. Leather notes amongst balsamic and savoury cooked plums
