The just-bottled 2007 Passopisciaro is a weightless yet powerful wine redolent of sweet candied cherries flowers herbs and minerals. The wine reveals lovely density and purity even if a few days of rain towards the end of the growing season in November robbed it of the intensity that informs the very finest vintages. Still there is gorgeous purity to the fruit that insures this will be fascinating wine to follow over the coming years. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2021. Andrea Franchetti wasn't content to just make profound wines at his Tuscan estate Tentua di Trinoro so he set out to replicate that success at Passopisciaro his property on Mount Etna. These new releases are nothing less than breathtaking. - Antonio Galloni Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate

On the palate the bright fruit melds beautifully with cleansing acidity. The dried cherry and strawberry take center stage with a side of licorice and white pepper. The finish is delicate as a whisper lingering on the palate for two to three minutes. This heavenly elixir of Mt. Etna is 100% Nerello Mascalese native to Siciliy and reminiscent of a lighter version of Nebbiolo crossed with youthful Burgundy. Perfect with highly-seasoned light meat dishes.
