Bright dark red. Very ripe aromas of sweet spices, quinine and red cherry. Similar flavors of aromatic red cherry and botanical herbs on the palate, with a fleshy tactile texture and a low acid mouthfeel. Finishes broad and ripe, with very good length. A bigger richer wine than Franchetti's other Contrada wines, but less well-delineated currently with a trace of alcoholic heat at the back. The P in the wine's name stands for Porcaria, an Etna Contrada; Franchetti's vines grow at about 650 meters above sea level. IAN D'AGATA, Vinous
