Tasca d'Almerita Tascante Ghiaia Nera Nerello Mascalese 2015

Sicily, ItalyThis opens with a lifted, savoury nose of dried cherry, thyme, smoked spices, and crushed rocks, bolstered by undergrowth and cedar from seven years of bottle age. It's quite complex, and evolves nicely in the glass over time, suggesting this is just starting to enter its peak. There's really no need to wait, though. Excellent concentration and balance on the palate, with fine, polished tannins that are just starting to resolve. This is the real deal and a fine value at this price.Tasted: 01 September 2022Tasted by: Prices:
