CRU ARTISAN WINE
Salvatore Geraci makes one of the icon wines of southern Italy: Faro Palari. An architect by training, this charismatic Sicilian from Messina approaches every detail with extreme precision, from the health of each of his vines to the ambitious restoration of his family manor into a modern winery and tasting room. The 2009 Faro Palari is firm and static with solid aromas of dried raspberry, iron, wet earthy and anisette seed that rise from the glass. The 2009 vintage is broad and brawny with a masculine personality. Drink 2018-2035.
