Very bright and focused with aromas of sliced strawberries, citrus and violets that follow through to a full body, juicy fruit and a flavorful finish. Chewy. Better in 2020, but already a beauty.

Wild rose, red berry, dark spice and Mediterranean brush aromas come together to create a delicate, alluring fragrance. The smooth, elegant palate doles out juicy red cherry, strawberry, white pepper and clove alongside polished, silky tannins. Bright acidity gives it tension and energy. It's already approachable, but will age well for several more years. Drink through 2026.
"Tornatore’s wines take root on the Northern slopes of Mount Etna, the tallest active volcano on the European continent. 114 acres of vines are planted at 550 to 700 meters above sea level in fertile, fast-draining volcanic soils. Out of a Sicilian family heritage that traces back to the 17th century, the Tornatore’s Mount Etna wine ventures began in 1865. Today the family’s operations are headed by Giuseppe Tornatore, a businessman whose expertise led to the acquisition of some of the region’s finest north-facing vineyards in the early 2000’s.” -- Winery
