More than the others before it, the 2010 vintage showed plump berries and generous green growth. The mild temperature helped the kind of ripening that gives a soft, non-angular wine with an unctuous fruit at its center.
The 2010 Passopisciaro is deceptively mid-weight, but behind the light color and seeming fleeting structure lies a deeply expressive core of perfumed red berries, crushed rocks, flowers and mint. A burst of deep salinity frames the bracing finish. Quite simply, this is a stunning wine. Think of the Passopisciaro as a cross of Chambolle-Musigny and Gevrey-Chambertin and Gattinara. The Passopisciaro bottling is made from parcels in Guardiola and smaller pieces that aren't large enough to be bottled separately.
A wine with lovely texture and length with strawberry. Full body, with beautiful density of fruit and a silky and round finish. Drink now or hold.
A light, elegant red, delivering perfumed cherry and currant fruit notes followed by hints of spice box and tobacco on the lingering, minerally finish.
