    Winemaker's Notes:

    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.

    Critical Acclaim:

    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.

    James Suckling

    A light, elegant red, delivering perfumed cherry and currant fruit notes followed by hints of spice box and tobacco on the lingering, minerally finish.

    A wonderful wine. 5 stars. Deceptively light color and light feel in the mouth but complex nose and mouth. Fresh fruit and flowers, red berries and spicebox. Tannins add length and complexity to the finish. If I could buy more I would. Should appeal to Pinot and Nebbiolo fans.
