      Faro Palari DOC 2012

      Amazing dark ruby, violet reflexes. Fresh fruit in the nose, delicate hints of raisins and spices. On the palate it is long and substantial, has a wonderful extract sweetness, rich in silky tannins, very complex, long persistent, in his elegant nature already today very seductive. Happy, who owns this wine or may only drink it ... SUPERIORE.DE

      "Sparkling ruby garnet. Compact nose, after pickled plums and blackberries, liquorice behind. Strong in approach and course, much ripe berry fruit, dense, present tannin, completely independent stylistics, firm pressure, in the echo after rhubarb." Falstaff

      "Red currant, red cherry, quinine, tobacco and mocha on the nose. Very sweet, pliant and deep, offering a multilayered quality to the deep flavors of spicy red plum, cocoa and tobacco. An attractive, smooth Faro with good minerality and a lingering saline element." Jancis Robinson

      "Red currant, red cherry, quinine, tobacco and mocha on the nose. Very sweet, pliant and deep, offering a multilayered quality to the deep flavors of spicy red plum, cocoa and tobacco. An attractive, smooth Faro with good minerality and a lingering saline element." Ian d’Agata (vinous.com)

      "Here is a wine that totally surprised me. The 2012 Faro Palari is enormously profound, elegant and finely etched. It is a wine that should be celebrated thanks to the myriad of small details it offers. First, the 2012 vintage shows a mineral side that is absolutely beautiful. The nose is sharp and focused with pencil shaving, brimstone and flint. As soon as those drying mineral notes lift, the bouquet warms up with fruit flavors: cherry, blackberry and dried raspberry. The bouquet continues to evolve with spice, leather and tobacco. This wine reaches an impressive level of complexity. Even though 2012 was not a classic vintage, the Faro appellation shows beautifully. In the mouth, the wine offers intensity, fleshy fruit flavors and bright acidity. The tannins are both soft and firm. This is a more immediate expression and I will give the wine a slightly shorter drinking window. This vintage will drink well in the long term but it will also show promising results in the medium term." Robert Parker

      "Underbrush, chopped mint, red berry and Mediterranean brush are just some to the aromas you'll find on this gorgeous red. Impeccably balanced, the smooth, delicious palate delivers juicy raspberry, ripe Marasca cherry, star anise and white pepper while a web of silky tannins provides elegant support. Loaded with finesse and already accessible, it will provide years of exceptional drinking pleasure." Wine Enthusiast

    About the winemakers
    Palari
    Sicily
    Palari

    Since the beginning of the 1990s, Sicily has experienced a real wine boom. The Palari winery is one of the most successful wineries on the Mediterranean island. The team around Salvatore Geraci and his brother Giampiero concentrates mainly on local grape varieties, such as those used in the company's own Palari Faro, which regularly ranks among the best red wines in Sicily and has already been compared to great Burgundies by experts.

    The founder of the estate - wine producer, architect, antique expert, university lecturer and globetrotter all in one - is one of the followers of a philosophy that attaches little importance to yield optimisation and marketing. Rather, Salvatore Geraci is far away from fashion trends, especially in search of the perfect red wine. In order to achieve this ambitious goal, he uses for the production in his artisan business, which already has cult status, some unusually old grape varieties that have already been declared dead.

    From this enchanting property, visitors can enjoy a magnificent view over the Strait of Messina and the Calabrian coast. The seven-hectare Palari winery is located in the tiny Faro wine growing area, up to 420 metres above sea level, and is supplied with fresh sea air, so it enjoys a special microclimate. Together with the autochthonous grape varieties, this contributes significantly to the regional character of the assortment, which consists of three fine, elegant and complex blend wines with a classicist aesthetic and strong character. All plots are biodynamically farmed. On mineral volcanic soils hang on ancient Alberello sticks such as with Nocera, Cappuccio Tignolino, Core'e Palumba, Calabrese, Galatena and Acitana in very steeply sloping locations towards the sea, laboriously tamed by stone terraces only a few grapes of rare varieties. Due to the low crop yield, the annual production of the Azienda Agricola Palari is particularly limited.

    A splendid family villa from the 18th century is used for the vinification and ageing of the wines. Some products are already considered by wine critics to be classics of the modern age. They have received about as many international awards as all the other producers on the island put together. Thanks to the Messina winery, the Palari Faro, the traditional and impressive flagship of the house, has survived to this day. For in the 1980s, at a time when Sicily's viticulture was on the ground, the beguiling and dreamy Kreszenz was threatened with disappearance. Thanks to Salvatore Geraci and the oenologist Donato Lanati, who developed the recipe, this wine experienced a renaissance when the winery was founded. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Salvatore Geraci is an all-rounder on the border to universal genius. [...] He fully embodies the rural heroic dimension of viticulture. For no other than heroic one can call the work that is done in the small ... Good."Gambero Rosso
