Planeta's 2017 Sicilia Nerello Mascalese Eruzione 1614 reveals a delicate and poised personality with small berry aromas and licorice followed by smoke, tar and ash. The wine delivers a subdued mouthfeel that slowly grows in intensity and length. You really taste the grape here, Nerello Mascalese, in its most naked and pure form. (ML)
Cask sample. Just mid crimson. Fine and concentrated raspberry with real depth and surprisingly expressive for this hot vintage. Light, fine, stalky raspberry palate with succulent, medium-bodied fruit. Firm tannins creeping up on the finish, betraying the year, but this will remain another year in cask. 14% but so lithe and yet powerful. 17+/20 points. (WS)
