We had an early visit to Passopisciaro, which is Andrea Franchetti’s winery on Mount Etna in Sicily. Very interesting. This winery was more expensive than most others that we visited, at 20 euro per person, but the visit was lengthy and quite nice. We visited each of their vineyard plots at various heights on the slopes of Mt. Etna. We then returned to the winery and toured the rooms there. We ended our visit with a tasting of each of their 7 wines (1 white and 6 red). The reds were all excellent, though the Franchetti was above and beyond, garnering a 97-point score from Robert Parker recently. As a result, it sold high, but it was excellent to try anyway.
Overall - very highly recommended. You won't be disappointed giving this place a shot!
