Passorosso is from ancient vines between 80-110 years old and from different terroirs on different lava flows and altitudes. Red berry, baking spice and a balsamic whiff of camphor lead the nose. Despite a challenging vintage, 2018 will be varietally correct, linear, with a pronounced acidity, with the long-lived characteristics that define the finer vintage on Etna. On the racy, linear palate, firm acidity and polished tannins accompany sour cherry, orange zest, mineral and aniseed. Taut refined tannins balance the vibrant energy.
