"One of the greatest wines ever made in Sicily.." Ian D'Agata, Vinous
15%Abv, 60% Petit Verdot and 40% Cesanese d’Affile
Franchetti is the top wine produced at Passopisciaro, a Super-Etnean wine of petit verdot and cesanese d’Affile from volcanic rock and ash. The grapes were planted in the early 2000s after Andrea Franchetti purchased the estate in the contrada Guardiola – a dense planting with vines 90cm x 90cm apart, at 1,000 meters (3,300 feet) above sea level.

En Primeur is the name given to the process of buying wine before it is bottled and released onto the market. Wines are offered for sale while they are still lying in barrels in their respective wineries in France. The prices at which they are offered exclude GST, Duty, Excise Tax and Shipping costs. These shipping costs and taxes become payable only after the wines have arrived in NZ and are ready for collection or despatch. Typically the wines are shipped and arrive between two and three years after the vintage.
