    I was really taken by the nose of this wine, it has a wild, windswept Mediterranean brush scent to it, with leather and earth but it has its own uniqueness. Perricone is one of Italy’s hundreds of indigenous grape varieties and the breadth of them all sometimes makes it difficult to handle. When I first tasted this wine I was stunned, the mouthfeel, density and balance where exceptional, these vineyards are at 1500’ so retain more freshness and balance. The wine reminded me a bit of Syrah’s structure and weight but the flavors are all Perricone, spice, sandalwood, rosemary, fresh leather and a bit of minerality. A powerful wine this would go best with leg of lamb.
    Drink from 2017 to 2023

    Porta del Vento is located at 2,000 feet above Palermo near Camporeale. Here the hillsides are steep and subjected to high winds, extreme temperature shifts and difficult terrain. Owner and winemaker Marco Sferlazzo farms biodynamically and is one of the few to work with the rare red varietal known as Perricone. His is one of the finest made and boasts complex aromas of plum, blue fruits, violets, herbs and minerals. Additionally it's structured yet balanced with a medium-bodied palate of dried blue fruits, fine tannins, juicy acidity and low alcohol as well. This is a rare wine that Italophiles will especially enjoy.
