    "Franchetti" Rosso Terre Siciliane IGT 2016 <br>6 Bottles in OWC

    Franchetti Rosso is the flagship of Passopisciaro and a breathtakingly perfect wine. The grapes come from the northern vineyards of Mount Etna, 1000 metres above sea level, where the soils are made up of ash and pumice. Franchetti is a mature, exotic wine that surrounds the palate with dark fruits. Refined tannins support the fruit, while an intense inner sweetness lends elegance and finesse. A thoroughly outstanding drop. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Opulent balsamic nose of blackberries and herbs; powerful and racy on the palate, with plenty of fullness; ends in a hearty-elegant finish." Vinum

    "Powerful, luminous ruby with violet shimmer. Multilayered and full-bodied, ripe berry fruit, with hints of blueberry, bromide and redcurrant, plus many spicy notes, pepper and cardamom. Firm, gripping, densely woven tannin that lasts long, firm pressure in the finale." Falstaff

    "A 60-40 blend of Petit Verdot and Cesanese d'Affile, the 2016 Franchetti shows a raw, determined character with dark fruit and prune aromas that emerge roaring from the bouquet. This is a loud, large-scale wine that wraps heavily over the palate with enduring waves of condensed black fruit, smoke, tar and cigar box. The wine is boldly extracted, almost to a fault, but it's also delightfully opulent and enriched. Saying this wine has bold character would be a gross understatement. It ages in new French barrique for eight months followed by a ten-months' resting period in cement vats. Only 3,900 bottles were made." Robert Parker

    "Fully saturated, impenetrable inky-ruby color. Smells very concentrated but offers pristine herbal and mineral nuances to the ripe red and black fruit aromas and flavors. Much more refined in the mouth than the powerful nose indicates, with lively acidity nicely extending flavors similar to the aromas on the long rich and very dense finish. A marvelous wine that is both rich and concentrated and yet light on its feet. Finishes with an enticing, spicy juicy note." Vinous
