Juicy mulberry nose, turning a bit more savoury on the palate. Roasted mulberries, mushrooms in tamari, balsamic notes and a wonderful wild bramble-berry character. So juicy and jiving with spectacularly fresh acidity. The tannins are little more firm than on their Naturalmente Bio Perricone, but they're perfectly pitched. Wow, these Caruso & Minini wines have never been better! VGV 17/20 points. (TC)"
Vinous Reverie Notes
Located on Sicily’s western-most coast near the town of Marsala. The winery boasts 120 hectares at 200-400 meters above sea level, including 5 hectares that are farmed organically and dedicated to Giovanna Caruso’s BIO project. Located 20 kilometers from the sea, the area is cooled by strong winds, yet is far enough from them to avoid any potential damage. The area, which was under water millions of years ago, is characterized by its alluvial soil, rich in water and organic substances. Most notable are the large stones called cuti in local dialect. The softball-sized cuti not only impart a distinct minerality on the grapes grown in them, but also soak up heat from the sun which they transfer to the vines, allowing for an earlier ripening of the grapes thus making harvest possible at a stage which will allow for higher acidity in the wines. Tasting Notes: The third of the wine aged in barrique for 4 months adds just enough structure. Still balanced with freshness, the wine is ruby red in color with deep scents of red fruit, herbs and ripe cherries with velvety tannins.
