2020 Pirrera, Eduardo Torres Acosta, Sicily

Young Spanish winemaking talent Eduardo Torres is starting to create a name for himself on the impressive vineyards of Mount Etna. This Nerello Mascalese is planted at 850 metres altitude in the Pirrera Contrada, that had been abandoned for a number of years. Eduardo has painstakingly been restoring the vineyard to its true potential. Expect brambles and garrigue notes as well as cranberry and wild strawberry aromas. Violets and liquorice spice are supported but chalky tannins and zesty acidty.

Tasting notes

I love the punchy brightness and energy in the Eduardo Torres Acosta 2020 Nerello Mascalese Contrada Pirrera. This IGT wine shows floral perfumes of rose and lilac with bright cherry and wild berry. The Pirrera reveals a graceful almost fragile personality that will appeal to lovers of Pinot Noir and Nebbiolo. This pretty wine shares a lot in common.
