Quite a different personality from its predecessor in 2016. This one is hyper floral with scents of geranium and damp rose petals, followed by what I can only describe as a candied maraschino cherry quality on the nose. The palate developed a more defined profile with a full day of aeration, showing crunchy cranberry, fresh thyme and hints of underbrush. Decidedly more delicate than the previous two vintages, but with striking character and nuance. Excellent with seared salmon.

Simple Sicilian but a clear expression.
