Vulcani d’Italia

Etna Rosso

Wine Type: Red Wine

Country: Italy

Region: Sicilia

Grapes: 90% Nerello Mascalese, 10% Indigenous grapes from Mt. Etna

Tasting Notes: Ruby red with light garnet hues in color. On the nose it is pleasant and fragrant, with notes of dried violet, cherries, peach, myrtle liqueur, dark spices. Persistent red fruit and earthy aromas, followed by a mix of bitter-sweet sensations supported by fine-grained smooth tannins. A lively long finish with black berry jam. Harmonious and elegant.

International Wine Report: The 2021 Etna Rosso shows an inviting aromatic profile of dark raspberries and strawberries which are joined by florals, spices and hints of earthy minerals. On the palate this is medium-bodied and displays lovely finesse and elegance with wonderful bright fruit character framing the velvety finish. This is already showing excellent today, but allow it another year or two for it to hit its stride.”
