PASSOPISCIARO 'Sciaranuova' 2015

Situated 2,800 feet above sea level, the Contrada of Sciaranuova dates back 90 years. In 2015 Andrea Franchetti crafted a simply stunning Nerello Mascalese from this high elevation vineyard. Lovely aromas of sweet red fruits, spices, floral and saline minerals, all take shape as this unwinds in the glass. This elegant red displays remarkable balance and focus with striking balance and finesse. A vibrant core of acidity beautifully highlights the red fruit and spice notes as this seamlessly makes its way into the long, silky finish. Overall, a simply gorgeous wine, which is beautiful now, yet shows the potential to age for years to come. (Best 2019-2030) - July, 2017 (JD)
