Franchetti "Terre Siciliane IGT" 2018

This is Passopisciaro’s flagship wine, crafted from Petit Verdot and Cesanese d'Affile grown on the rocks and volcanic ash of Contrada Guardiola. From up to 1,000 meters above sea level, it’s a supremely concentrated wine—expressive and full-bodied with dense tannins, yet balanced by distinct mineral freshness and spice aromatics.
