The 2020 Contrada Guardiola (G) is a showstopper; surprisingly floral, with masses of rose and violet tones giving way to blackberries and a dusting of spice. This flows across the palate with ease, silky at first with a salty core and tart red berries that drench the senses; yet throughout, it remains perfumed and finessed. Spiced citrus and herbal tones linger through the long finale, along with a coating of fine tannins that promise a long and even development. Franky stated, this is one of the prettiest renditions of Guardiola fruit that I’ve ever experienced.

Vineyard site: Contrada Guardiola is an old vine site planted at between 800-1,000 m (2,600 to 3,300 ft) above sea level, on the edge of a lava flow from Etna’s 1947 eruption. It produces a deep and complex wine with a rich taste of red fruits and smoky mineral nuances. They make this wine from a careful selection of only the oldest nerello mascalese vines, which was first bottled separately beginning in 2011 for this producer.
