The owner and winemaker, Marco Nicolosi uses a mix of 80% Nerello Mascalese and 20% Nerello Cappuccio and Nerello Mantellato. A beautiful Etna red that delivers rose petal, wild strawberries and crushed raspberries on the nose. There are layers of savoury and sweet spice and the tannins are fine grained and very well managed. Very accessible now but will almost certainly develop more complexity.
Unique, exotic and hard to pull away from, the 2019 Etna Rosso wafts up from the glass with a dark mix of grilled herbs, ash, musky black currants, dried roses and hints of candle wax. The expression is soft and round at first, yet with a core of sour berries and citrus to contrast,as brisk acids maintain a fresh persona. This finishes with medium length and lightly structured, with a tart tug of primary concentration that creates a slightly chewy impression. This is far from your easy-going Rosso and could use a short stay in the cellar to soften its contours.
