Di sicuro non si può dire che è un passito mediocre, un buon passito di pantelleria, ma francamente, non proprio eccelso. Mi sarei aspettato qualcosa in più da questa storica firma siciliana.
Intendiamoci: non sono rimasto deluso, tutt'altro, ma mentre i profumi mi sono sembrati molto convincenti e ricchi, in bocca mi è sembrato non reggere il confronto con il naso, soprattutto la persistenza, certamente buona, ma non lunghissima.
