Munjebel (Classico) Rosso Nerello Mascalese 2013

This bottle has aged way better than I thought it would as this was before Frank started adding small amounts of sulfur to help stabilize his wines. More balanced now. Fruit is still super vibrant while the acidity isn’t as razor sharp as before. Nose is SUPER funky with hints of cabbage on top of the smokiness and red fruit. Drinking window: now - 1 yr. — 9 days ago

Had a craving for some homemade Italian food on hot humid day. This reminds me of a Beaujolais. Tomato leaf, cherry. Tannins are present. — 21 days ago

Vigneti Vecchio

'Crasa Contrada' Etna Rosso Nerello Mascalese 2017

From Le Volpe e l’uva, this is not as good an expression of nerella mascalese as what comes out of a place like Passopisciaro, but you can’t beat it for the price. Italy in a glass… — 9 days ago

I like these with some chill. My usual Saturday thick chop and a bottle of this makes a nice end to the day. Cherry, unripe peach. — 19 days ago
