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."

"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."
