Rovittello Etna Rosso Nerello Mascalese 2012

I was looking for the Contessa but couldn’t find it in the cellar so ended up with the Rovittello which I had only 9 weeks ago in November 2020. A savoury cherry nose with that Etna minerality - earthy and touch of volcanic dust. A light to medium weight palate. The finest of sandy tannins - oak almost totally integrated. An excellent wine with lamb mince. Bought at the winery several years ago on our Sicilian trip. Seems like a lifetime ago. — 6 months ago

Etna Rosso Nerello Mascalese 2015

Colour of cold black tea. Cherry, toffee, earth and dried herbs on the nose. Palate has savoury earthy cherry - just medium bodied. The following night savoury red fruits with a skinnsy element on the palate developing into a touch of astringency. Not for long keeping - drink now if you have some. — a month ago

Etna Rosso Nerello Mascalese Nerello Cappuccio 2017

ロッソディヴェルゼッラ以来、エトナロッソになってからは初めて飲んだ。
若々しいがギスギスしない。チャーミング。
ミネラルと柔らかさと、程よい酸の伴うボリューム感(昔飲んだ時はもう少し丸みのあるカプッチョが感じられた)。

Rovittello Etna Rosso Nerello Cappuccio Blend 2012

From prior bottles I didn’t decant this as I knew there was no sediment. One of the lightest Italian Reds you will find not considering Rosato. Mid to light Ruby in colour. Very earthy - cherry skins savoury and minerally. You can almost assume this has been grown on decayed lava flows, which it has. Bought at the cellar door around 5 years ago. I love this wine but it’s not worth the $110 AUD I paid. The grapes from Etnas favoured northern slopes even though the winery itself is on the south western slopes of Mount Etna. — 2 months ago
