This is the entry-level wine from Giuseppe Russo, but it is in no way a 'basic' wine. A blend of his three single vineyards (Feudo, Feudo di Mezzo, San Lorenzo), this is an extremely elegant and complex wine, made from Nerello Mascalese (with a touch of Nerello Cappuccio as is the tradition). It has lovey cherry fruit notes, with secondary aromas and flavours of leather and tobacco. This is such a beauty.

Bright saturated ruby-red. Dusty aromas of licorice, herbs and pepper, turning fruitier and mintier with aeration. Then fine-grained and smooth, offering flavors of musky plum, minerals, earth and flint. Finishes saline and long, but youthfully chewy tannins leave a tactile impression of chunkiness. I’d cellar this for another couple of years to let it round out fully.
