    “Very deep red. Pure, penetrating and deep spicy red cherry aromas and flavors are complicated by violet, sweet spices and powdered rocks. Boasts a remarkable ripe Pinot Noir-like similarity. The finish is long and smooth. Irresistible.” -Ian D’Agata

    “The sweet, but not overripe plum aroma gives this full, but rather soft Sicilian red immediate appeal. However, the finish is a bit tart. Drink now.”

    “Bright red. Perfumed aromas and flavors of red berries, pear, pomegranate and wild herbs. Finishes smooth, saline and floral, with outstanding length. A little less concentrated than the 2014 but this always strikes me as talented Alessandro Cellai’s (technical director not just of Feudi del Pisciotto in Sicily, but also of Castellare in Chianti Classico and of Rocca di Frassinello in Maremma) as the best wine in the Feudi del Pisciotto lineup. (13.5% alcohol).”

    “Deep ruby. Ripe, showy aromas of red and dark berries plus iron and botanical herb notes. Boasts terrific volume and juicy, flinty raspberry, tar and licorice notes. Finishes bright, long, and with just the slightest hint of alcoholic warmth.” -Ian D’Agata
