Deep dark red colour with black tinged edges and a dark red hue. Nosing reveals pretty aromatics of red and sour cherries mixed in with dried cherries followed by fresh herb infusions, some earth and spice. Possessing some similarities to Grenache the palate possesses juicy red cherry and raspberry flavours, infusions of dried herbs, subtle tobacco and a rock like minerality. Dry muscular finish with very bright crunchy like acidity and chalky tannins which give the wine a mouth puckering textural feel. There’s plenty of potential here, it just requires some time. Excellent Pinot like power wave with a long aftertaste of bright red cherries, raspberries, dried herb infusions and a rock like minerality.
Cellar 5-6 years.

Other Reviews….
Bright red-ruby. The captivating nose combines strawberry, raspberry, minerals, violet and flint aromas. Creamy-sweet but amazingly light on its feet, offering palate-staining, perfumed flavors of soft red berries, ripe red cherry, vanilla, aromatic herbs and crushed rock. Rich, ripe and suave, but displays a penetrating, saline and energetic quality that gives this beauty a three-dimensional mouthfeel and a light-on-its-feet quality. Finishes with great length and wonderfully polished tannins. Absolute knockout wine: from a memorable vintage on Etna, this is most likely the best Passorosso ever (in earlier vintages, it used to be called simply Passopisciaro). Mainly Nerello Mascalese.
Drink 2018-2026.
