"This harmonious, medium-bodied red layers fine-grained tannins with a rich note of smoky mineral and flavors of pureed cherry, grilled herb and star anise. Vibrant, presenting a firm, focused finish. Drink now through 2022. 2,500 cases made."

Product Description:

"This terrific Etna Rosso, which takes its name from the contrada Martinella on the North-Eatern slope of Mt. Etna, is a blend of 80% Nerello Mascalese, 20% Nerello Cappuccio, all organically grown. Grapes here benefit from cool mountain climate and rich volcanic soils.

A smoky, slightly vegetal aroma sets the stage. The red fruit is sweet and focused, and there’s a note of bitter cocoa that is typical of Nerello Mascalese. The tannins are refined and nicely balanced with the mineral finish. It will pair well with homemade pasta with porcini mushrooms, pork and all savory meat dishes." - Importer
