About

94

"This is very ripe on the nose with smoked meat, walnuts and tree bark. Full body. Layered and rich with lots of soft fruit and ripe tannins. Goes on for a long time. A bigger and richer style of Etna red. Shows well for a 2013. From organically grown grapes. Drink now or hold."

Product Description:

"This terrific Etna Rosso, which takes its name from the contrada Martinella on the North-Eastern slope of Mt. Etna, is a blend of 90% Nerello Mascalese, 10% 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
