Passobianco IGT Tenuta di Passopisciaro 2016
SGD59 per bottle
100% Chardonnay, from limestone soils, vinified without oak. Mid-golden colour, with a nose of ripe peach and zesty grapefruit, backed up by a creamy breadth. The palate begins ripe and effusive, but is reined back by a pithy citric twist and a chalkiness, which adds definition to the mid-palate. Fresh acidity ensures a long finish, which is precise and focused.
Passorosso Etna Rosso DOC Tenuta di Passopisciaro 2015
SGD63 per bottle
This is a bright fresh red, in all honesty a Pinot Noir substitute in terms of food and wine matching – ideal accompaniment to poultry and game birds.
Contrada Chiappemacine IGP Tenuta di Passopisciaro 2015
SGD78 per bottle
A lovely lifted nose, a wine that really accentuates the possible links that this variety has to Nebbiolo. Crisp red berry fruits, this is bright, cheerful and inviting.
Contrada Guardiola IGP Tenuta di Passopisciaro 2015
SGD92 per bottle
2015 was a quick and early-ripening year on Etna. It was a year of great vitality within the plants, fertilized in the well-watered soils from the rainy winter, followed by tremendous heat during the summer. The grapes began showing color, ripeness, and sweetness quite, while maintaining.
