Perricone del Core Sicilia DOC
Wine & Spirits
Bright sunshine and constant winds at Feudo Montoni gave a mid-weight wine with beautiful freshness. Meaty tannins frame flavors of dark plum, tobacco and carob, taking on notes of blood and iron that lend a pleasant rusticity to the wine.
Juicy and savory, this has aromas evoking black-skinned berry, crushed mint, carob and a hint of Mediterranean brush. On the linear, taut palate, dusty tannins accompany juicy blackberry, blueberry and almond. Drink through 2023.
Dark ruby-red. Clean, precise aromas and flavors of dark cherry, minerals and tar, plus a lively note of violet; strikes me as much darker than in the past. Suave but youthfully chewy, with a dense mouthfeel and a brooding quality on the long back end; this will likely improve with another year in the cellar. Finishes very long and spicy.
