Wine Advocate: 92 Points

A release of 3,860 bottles, the Passopisciaro Vini Franchetti 2018 Contrada G draws its Nerello Mascalese from the Guardiola vineyard, located in the village of Castiglione di Sicilia, with vines at 800 meters in elevation. This site is walled off by a much newer lava flow that formed in 1947, but it stopped before damaging the ancient vines. The wine is lean and streamlined with a mild and pretty bouquet focused on wild berry, rose potpourri, ash and hints of tarry spice and smoke. Some dustings of white pepper also appear. Its polished tannins are fully integrated into the wine's light texture. You might enjoy it with a Sicilian minestra with lentils.

Wine Spectator: 92 Points

Fine and silky, this supple red offers a lightly mouthwatering range of steeped raspberry, ripe black plum and Early Grey tea flavors, which are accented by notes of cedar spice, rose and tar-tinged mineral. Chewy finish. Drink now through 2030. 321 cases made, 125 cases imported.
