Tenuta di Castellaro Ypsilon 2017

Sicily, Italy350 metre deep, sandy volcanic soils are at the heart of this 60/30/10 blend of corinto, nero d'avola, and alicante grown on Sicily's Lipari Island. The attack is attractively ripe but balanced by altitude acidity and the island's magical volcanic soils. Bing cherries mark the nose and spill across the palate, mixing with black raspberries and dried herbs. There is a lot to like here, and it is only beginning to show its very bright future. Savoury and laced with dense powdery tannin, this will age gracefully through 2025 and beyond. A whole roasted chicken would be an elegant dinner match.Tasted: 01 June 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 35.99 BCLS Producer: Tenuta di CastellaroDistributors: Sur Lie
