About This Wine:
Brillant hues of beautiful ruby red colors, it is dense and bright. On the nose the wine has ample and elegant perfumes of red fruit and blueberries. It has floreal notes, typical of the Mediterranean regions; it is slightly spicy with scent of black pepper and nutmeg perfectly integrated with the oak aging. On the palate the taste is well balanced between elegant and firm tannins and it has a round, rich fruity flavor wich is lond and persistent.

Ratings & Reviews

92+ Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous:
"Good full, deep red. Aromas of spicy dark plum, licorice and botanical herbs. Supple and fresh, with a slightly medicinal, savory cast to the flavors of plum, tobacco leaf, and leather. Finishes with supple tannins, a subtle resiny quality and very good length. (13.5% alcohol)" - Ian D'Agata (Sep 2017)

91 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Le Casematte's 2013 Faro represents a blend of Nerello Mascalese, Nerello Cappuccio, Nocera and Nero d'Avola from the far north of Sicily overlooking the Straights of Messina. The bouquet shows the rustic aromas that are often associated with these grapes. You get wild berry, black currant, olive and wet earth. This expression delivers those aromas with an elegant sense of intensity that leaves its mark without feeling pungent or too sharp. The careful balance achieved here is the wine's strongest suit." - Monica Larner (30th Dec 2015)
