A seriously special wine and the crown jewels to Franks masterpieces. Super textural with smooth contours, the fruit is red and sapid yet with a violet-tinge inner florals and sweet minerality. Almost as rare as Lofi wines come.

“It’s almost impossible to pull away from the 2019 Nerello Mascalese Magma Rosso, with its beguiling bouquet of white pepper-tinged dusty rose offset by nuances of tangerine, pomegranate and the slightest hint of animal musk. This is a seriously textural expression, with smooth contours and admirable weight that’s perfectly balanced by stimulating acidity. Its fruit is decidedly red and sapid, yet with violet-tinged inner florals and sweet minerality. While structured, the 2019 maintains fantastic energy throughout the long yet remarkably fresh finale, as licorice and hints of hard candies slowly taper off into oblivion. While a year of cellaring is recommended here, I can’t help but suggest that readers check in on at least one bottle sooner than later to enjoy its primary power. The fruit for Magma hails from the Barbabecchi cru in the North valley between 870-910 meters, with its ungrafted vines that are over 100 years old. After a sixty-day maceration, the wine is vinified completely in neutral epoxy tanks.” 97+ points, Eric Guido, Vinous - June 2022
