PASSOPISCIARO Contrada Sciaranuova (S) 2011

The 2011 Contrada Sciaranuova is an elegant and refined expression of Nerello Mascalese, which comes from the slopes of Mt. Etna at an elevation if 800 meters above sea level and vines planted in soils mainly consisting of new lava that has turned into thick gravel. This opens with high-pitched aromas of strawberries and bright raspberries followed by notes of smoke and minerals. The fruit is so ripe and fresh bursting onto the palate. This shows remarkable focus and purity as well as wonderful balance and structure all the way through the delicate, juicy finish. An absolutely gorgeous wine, which continues to gain depth and complexity with each minute in the glass. If approaching this early on be sure to allow a considerable amount of air contact.
