Vinous 93 Points
As I've written before, the nerello mascalese-based wines coming from the volcanic soils high on Sicily's Mount Etna are some of my personal favorites these days. This is the entry level bottling from Etna's finest producer, and is already showing a supple mouthfeel and deep fruit flavors. This wine has the fine, elegant structure of Burgundy, but the black fruit flavors of Nebbiolo, all in one package. Irresistible. And look at the price!
From Vinous: "Bright red. Pure nose offers red cherry and raspberry fruit aromas complicated by herbs and minerals. Suave and rather tightly wound, but nicely lifted by salty minerality that accentuates the bright red fruit flavors. Finishes firmly tannic but not drying, with outstanding persistence. Simply a great entry level Etna Rosso."
