Firriato's Harmonium epitomizes 'spicy', with so much nuance and depth of piquancy. Nutmeg, black pepper, vanilla bean, and bay leaf are so vivid and individual you would think they were infused in the wine! That's not to minimize the fruit character, with lush full blackberry and wild raspberry flavors. There is a balance and completeness to this Sicilian principessa. True to it's titular claim, this is a truly harmonious and resonant wine.

Feelings: The purest varietal Nero d' Avola is a morel meaty but has the intensity in fragrance and sweetness of a sour cherry purple. That's when everything has calmed his volatile mood, when there is no residual sulfur fermentation and processing is in solution, and when in no way affected by oxide is crystalline fragrance of his native profumoso omore. Conditions that need to be met viticulture and enology of utmost wisdom, naturalness and care. And when they told him impolpa a varietal wine of concentration, acid- soft - tannin, the sharp enological of the present, this morel fleshy fragrance of a sour cherry purple reaches harmonious and persuasive all'insuperabile persuasiveness fructose d' a blackberry. From risplendenze of pure oak made ​​the crystallinity of a flower.

FIRRIATO 'Harmonium' 2011
Points: 92
Report Date: September, 2014
Drinking Window: 2016-2023
Producer: Firriato
Country: Italy 
Region: Sicily
Appellation: Sicily IGT
Importer: Soilair Selections
The 2011 ‘Harmonium’ is 100% Nero d’Avola, which comes from 3 separate crus within the 165 hectare Borgo Guarini Estate; Ferla, Lepre and Beccaccia each having their own unique terroir. The wine itself delivers a mix of fresh, savory and sweet aromas that consist of dark cherries and ripe blackberries, which are layered with sweet spices, cocoa powder, warm toasty notes and a briary chracter. The dark fruits carry over onto the Full body, where a burst of acidity gives this a sense of freshness. This remains nicely balanced all the way through the finish where even more dark fruits, spices and toasted notes continue linger. Today this seems as if it’s still another year or two away from hitting its stride, I would recommend allowing this just another couple years of bottle age before it will begin to show its best. (Best 2016-2023) - September, 2014 (JD)
