About

Rating:

91

The 2018 Etna Rosso bursts from the glass with sweetly spiced cherries and wild berries nicely contrasted by hints of sage. This is silky and pliant in feel, motivated by juicy acids that further enliven its ripe red and blue fruits. Notes of lavender and purple-tinged inner florals linger long, as the 2018 tapers off to a twang of salty minerality. This zesty and pure Nerello Mascalese is refined completely in concrete. Nicely done.

Product Description:

A finely meshed red, with round and creamy tannins woven with a subtle streak of smoky mineral. Offers flavors of dried cherry and raspberry fruit, a touch of cured tobacco and accents of ground white pepper and citrus. Lightly chewy on the lingering finish.
