Ruby red in color with light violet reflections. Notes of prune, blueberry, and black pepper, intermingle with those of cocoa and licorice. Fresh, soft and round on the palate with bold tannins that are typical of this variety, well-polished. Pair with red meat, minestrone soup, and medium aged cheeses.

Dark ruby-red. Clean, precise aromas and flavors of dark cherry, minerals and tar, plus a lively note of violet; strikes me as much darker than in the past. Suave but youthfully chewy, with a dense mouthfeel and a brooding quality on the long back end; this will likely improve with another year in the cellar. Finishes very long and spicy.

Juicy and savory, this has aromas evoking black-skinned berry, crushed mint, carob and a hint of Mediterranean brush. On the linear, taut palate, dusty tannins accompany juicy blackberry, blueberry and almond. Drink through 2023.

The 2018 Sicilia Perricone Core offers a rather mild interpretation of a grape that can deliver a lot more power and darkness in other vintages. With a lot of rain toward the end of the growing season, this vintage is a little faded and subdued in comparison. You get dark fruit, black cherry and some earthy notes on the close. I would suggest drinking this wine within the next 18 months.
