Reviews & Ratings

Average Critic Score
90.5
The 2016 Etna Rosso Passorosso is the most accessible of the red wines presented by Andrea Franchetti and the team at Passopisciaro in the not-always-easy 2016 vintage. The wine is clean and forthcoming with a nice succession of wild berry and cassis, all framed by spice, tar and toasted aniseed. This wine makes itself immediately available for a pairing with roasted porchetta stuffed with fennel and herbs. The mouthfeel is crisp but compact on the close. Some 47,000 bottles were made.
Robert Parker Wine Advocate
This light- to medium-bodied red shows fine balance, with bright ripe cherry fruit, orange zest and tea leaf flavors. A subtle streak of tarry mineral gains momentum on the chewy finish. Drink now through 2026. 3,917 cases made, 1,150 cases imported. — AN

Tenuta di Trinoro & Passopisciaro

Tenuta di Trinoro & Passopisciaro

Found in the most remote corners of the region, where Tuscany meets Umbria and Lazio, there lies Tenuta di Trinoro. Andrea Franchetti established the estate upon this virgin wine territory of Sarteano in 1992. Today, Franchetti remains one of the most extreme winemakers in Italy, continuing to push traditional French viticulture models. He planted Bordeaux varieties at altitudes up to 500-700 meters, at super high densities, and then picks them as late as possible, even in November. He goes on to vinify every little parcel individually so he can meticulously monitor each one’s development, selecting only the best for the Tenuta di Trinoro cuvée. Clearly, the terroir is particular, given not only its lavishness but also the originality that it brings to the wines. Low-yields also enhance the wine’s structured black fruit and wild herb essences. As much as we admire Franchetti’s Tenuta di Trinoro – based on Cabernet Franc with small amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot – his second label, Le Cupole, offers a quality-price ratio that is too good to believe. ...

Grapes

A Sicilian dark-skinned grape variety, Nerello is divided into two varieties: Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio. Nerello Mascalese is a red wine which owes its name to the Mascali area found in the province of Catania. This variety is the most grown black-skinned grape in Sicily and Nero D' Avola. The best expression can be found on the slopes of the Etna Volcano, between 350 and 1100 meters above sea level. The volcanic soils, rich in ash and mineral salts, give Nerello Mascalese unique characteristics, that are also shaped by the climatic changes in temperature. When vinified, Nerello Mascalese reveals fruity flavors, with a remarkable minerality and a persistent and harmonious taste on the palate. The aromas are reminiscent of the noble wines of Barolo and Burgundy. Both Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio are late ripening grapes, which allows for aging in bottle. These two varieties blended together are part of the denomination Etna Rosso DOC, in which we find 80% of Nerello Mascalese grapes and 20% of Nerello Cappuccio grapes. The name, Nerello Cappuccio, derives from the cloak shape of its leaves, that envelop the bunches to protect them from the severe weather of Etna. The wine obtained from Nerello Cappuccio grapes is ruby red in color with shades of violet and a taste on the palate reminiscent of cherry. ​ ...

Sicily

Sicily

Volcanic in origin with an Mount Etna looming overhead, Sicily has long produced wine with a plethora of many other vegetables and fruits. For anyone who has visited this magical island, it is truly a Garden of Eden. Vineyards tend to be planted on the corners around the periphery of the island – Etna on the eastern side, which has become arguably its more qualitative area in recent years; Siracusa further south; Faro on its northeast side and numerous DOCs and IGT vineyards on its western coast, including the legendary Marsala zone. The smaller islands of Lipari and Pantelleria also produce distinctive wines. It has plantings of some international varieties such as Merlot and Chardonnay; however more indigenous varieties such as Nero d’Avola, Cerasuolo and Nerello Mascalese tend to take centre stage. Its most famous producer is generally considered Planeta; however, newer producers are rising and creating some notable, even exceptional wines. ...
