SOMEWHAT DISAPPOINTING

"A little lighter than expected on fruit length of finish and mouth feel. Expressed less terroir thananticipated. I discovered that this producer has single-vineyard releases at considerable higher-cost. Perhaps they deliver what I expected. Sicilian producers may be getting a carried away with pricing."

PRETTY GOOD VALUE AS FAR AS ITALIAN WINES ARE CONCERNED.

PRETTY DISAPPOINTED WITH THIS ONE.

"Touted as full-bodied which it wasn't. Medium weight, bit flimsy on fruit. Unimpressive finish seems like generic $6.99 wine from the region. Did not appreciate much terroir. Been through 3 bottles. Actually three stars was overly generous. Definitely overly hyped."

WAS NOT AS GOOD AS THE REVIEW DEPICTED IT TO BE

"Lacked fruit. Had more acidity and less body than anticipated. Also short finish on the palate."
