Allegracore Etna Rosso DOC Nerello Mascalese-Nerello Cappuccio Blend 2019

Delectable Wine

The 2019 Etna Rosso Allegracore opens with a dusting of confectioners’ sugar, yet it then morphs into a wild blend of savory herbs, sour cherries, tangerine and crushed ashen stone. It’s soft-textured, verging on fleshy in feel, yet pure in character, casting mineral-tinged red berries over a core of brisk acidity. This finishes long and lightly structured, while leaving a black tea-like staining upon the senses, all under an air of rosy florals. This varietal Nerello Mascalese is simply stunning today, yet it should also excel through short-term cellaring. (Eric Guido, Vinous, June 2022)

I have never gone near a peacocks rear, but when I do, I will think of Peter’s Chianti
