One of the world’s great rose wines, or so I says. This one is nero d’Avola, frappato and a lick of moscato from a mate’s vineyard. Lamoresca a remarkable natural wine producer and agriturismo in the middle of nowhere Sicily, or the middle of everywhere once you get there and take it all in. Beautiful produce grown on that farm too. Behold the cacti that fringe the property, like out of a Wild West set.
Fragrant, jolly with red berries, lifted with rose petal scents, a whiff of brined green olive and sage leaf. Incredibly succulent texture, glass shard acidity keeping things fresh, tightly wound fruit flavours dusted with significant spice and mixed Italian herbs. Amazing, saline minerally finish with tart, cranberry tang in tow and a lick of ashy slate-wet pebble. Firming tannins are lacy, ultra-fine but there. Oh my, such a good wine. - The Wine Front
