PASSOPISCIARO Contrada Guardiola (G) 2012

Guardiola is located between 800 and 1000 meters asl and consists of old bush trained vines of Nerello Mascalese. The 2012 Guardiola is beautiful showing, offering aromas of dark cherries and red fruits woven together with sweet red licorice, graphite and fresh violets which all come together in the glass. Is possesses a lovely silky texture with wonderful balance and gorgeous bright red fruits cascading onto the finish. This becomes more accessible with air, however it would be best to allow this another few years in bottle. (Best 2018-2028) - August, 2015 (JD)
