5 STARS; RECOMMENDED: Wine Direct Tasting Team

80-110 year old vines; 100% Nerello Mascalese

Passorosso is Vini Franchetti's Flagship wine from ancient vines between 80-110 years old and from different terroirs on different lava flows and altitudes.

"This beauty has everything we love about great Etna Nerello Mascalese. Pure wild aromas of raspberry, herbs and iron, with spicy, blueberry fruit and minerals on the nose. Multilayered and complex with a full luscious mouth & a brooding quality demanding attention. Totally polished texture finishes very long with minerality and youthfully chewy tannins. Chiseled from the bones of the great mountain."

"Red berry, baking spice and a balsamic whiff of camphor lead the nose. 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. Drink through 2026."
