A sleek, medium-bodied red, with snappy acidity and light, taut tannins enlivening the flavors of wild raspberry, mandarin orange peel, smoky mineral and anise. Offers a tangy, herb-laced finish. Drink now through 2025. 500 cases made, 125 cases imported.
Plenty of smoke, pumice, cedar, pine cones and cigar box on this one, not to mention dried strawberries and red licorice. Then come hints of treacle tart and fudge. Lots of mineral drive on the palate, which is wrapped up neatly in fine tannins. Medium-bodied and quite long on the finish. Drink now.
Also all Nerello Mascalese, the 2016 Contrada Pianodario jumps up in price and spent a year in larger Slavonian oak barrels before bottling. With a wonderful sense of minerality and an almost seaside-like iodine character, its lighter ruby color is followed by ripe cherry and strawberry fruits as well as a complex, pretty notes of rose petals, black tea, tobacco, and spice. Beautifully balanced, elegant, and medium-bodied, on the palate, it's another stunning wine from this estate.
