Italy — Sicily • $22.95 • 89.5/100

This blend of 70% Nerello Mascalese and 30% Nocera is from the Faro area of northeastern Sicily. It is medium-depth, bright red with glints of garnet. Aromas of ripe cherry, raspberry and blackberry fruit are complemented by violets, damp earth, and just a hint of oak spice. Dry, with bright acidity, moderate alcohol and fine tannins, the ripe fruit and berry flavours are lucid and transparent on the palate, and the finish is lengthy, with a stony-mineral character. A very nice introduction to Nerello Mascalese. • LCBO Release 05/27/2017 • LCBO id#487991 • Find it at your nearest LCBOWOODMAN WINES & SPIRITS (Agent)
