TASTING NOTES

"Violets, tar, asphalt, black cherries and plums all come alive in the 2010 Franchetti. Wonderfully alive and vibrant in the glass, the 2010 shows an unusual level of ripeness and juiciness for the year. Ideally, the 2010 needs a few years to shed some of its baby fat, as it is almost too intense today. Still, it is impossible to miss the wine's detail, nuance and transparency. This 100% Petit Verdot should be a stunner in another few years' time. The flagship Franchetti remains one of the most distinctive wines of the Etna, although in spirit and interpretation it is quite far from every other wine I have tasted." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"Dark yet vibrant, with floral damson plum, blueberry coulis and spice notes backed by fine tannins and a long, tarry finish. Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2018. 260 cases made." Wine Spectator
