I don’t usually get to taste the Passorosso (this wine) alongside all the single contrada wines, so that’s interesting. Well, at least for me. This wine is not as engaging as the cru wines, though it does present a good account of the character of the vintage. Importer: Mondo
Poached strawberry, honey, dried herbs and fresh mint. It’s medium-bodied, stony and fleshy, ripe red berries with a little spice, fine talc-like tannin grip, savoury too, with dusty tannin and a dash of aniseed on a subtly perfumed finish of good length. Not especially concentrated, but a lovely example of Etna rosso here. Drink 2022-2030. 93+ points. Gary Walsh, The Wine Front.
