90 Vinous Media
The 2019 Rosso Pithos is dark, dusty and youthfully coy, showing just a glimmer of wild blackberries, blueberries, sage and wet stone. Its silky textures are further enlivened by bright acidity, while crunchy, tart woodland berries and minerals cascade across the palate. This is so juicy yet refined, coloring within the lines of balance while delivering masses of fresh fruits and florals. The Pithos is a blend of 60% Nero d'Avola and 40% Frappato. (EG)
