Pale garnet. Bright red berries, sour red cherry, tomato sauce, allspice, red licorice, peat, dried mixed herbs. High acidity, silky medium+ tannins, and some heat (14%) with the medium+ drying finish. 39-day maceration in stainless steel tanks and 18 months maturation in concrete vats. Non calcareous volcanic soils.

Ive tasted nerello a few times...smoky, cigar ash, med plus acidity with dried red and black fruits. Honestly on its own..its tough to drink..that volcano soil and elevation is clearly evident..absolutely needs food. Ill keep trying...

2021 winter. With the prices for many single-vineyard wines surging ever higher, it’s a good thing there are lots of good “standard” bottlings too. Dark stone, black cherry and all that.

鉄っぽさと塩っぽさとミネラル。
ラズベリーなどの小さな赤いベリー。アルコール度数14%とアルコール感が高いので、ちょっと迫力あって、もうちょっと薄うまい方が好みだが、それでも旨味もあるし、果実味もきれいで美味しい。

A nice 100% nerello mascalese. Dried flowers and some smoke on the nose. Great acid, tannins are a bit unintegrated. One for food.

Always love this wine. For me, a great wine and producer. So well balanced. Lively and complex fruit, great acidity, interesting and long finish. Sad the price keep rising. Now $30.
