Case of 6 bottles

Varietals: Nerello Mascalese, Nerello Cappuccio, Nocera (organic)

Description: Aromatic with vibrant red fruit, Mediterranean herbs and earthy complexity. Integrated tannins and a distinct minerality are balanced with the nocera's acidity. This is focused and precise with incredible structure. 

92 Points, Vinous: "The 2017 Faro is spicy and perfumed, the violet and rose tones giving way to peppery herbs, earthy minerals and musky black cherry. Its fleshy and enveloping textures are well balanced by zesty acids, as waves of tart wild berries and sour citrus wash across the palate, leaving a tactile mix of minerals and grippy tannins in their wake. In a word, spellbinding."
