Passopisciaro Contrada C Chiappemacine Terre Siciliane IGT, 2019
100% Nerello Mascalese from a 90-year-old vineyard in Contrada Chiappemacine at 550 m above sea level. Fermentation in stainless steel and aged for 18 months in large oak casks. Just mid ruby. Peppery nose of red fruit, cherry, rhubarb and raspberry with a spicy undertow and a hint of oak and tobacco leaf. Gorgeous depth and concentration on the palate and with a layer of fine-grained tannins. Real intensity on the finish. Cool-climate spirit in spite of its 15% alcohol. 17/20
