Passopisciaro Contrada Guardiola 2013


We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

Contrada Guardiola (Contrada G) is an ancient domain between 800 and 1,000 m (2,600 to 3,300 ft) above sea level, on the edge of the lava flow from Etna's 1947 eruption. It produces a deep and complex wine with a rich taste of red fruit. We make this wine from a careful selection of some of our older nerello mascalese vines, which we started bottling separately beginning in 2011.

Wine SpectatorLicorice and tar notes underscore the dried cherry, sandalwood and grilled herb notes in this dense, finely knit red. Well-balanced, featuring a core of aromatic spice and mineral, this should open nicely with air or short-term cellaring. Drink now through 2026.

Wine EnthusiastCrushed stone, clove, dark-skinned berry and Mediterranean herb aromas emerge. The palate is rather shy, offering sour cherry, licorice, white pepper and mineral framed in firm acidity and assertive, fine-grained tannins.
