Contrada P Terre Siciliane Red Blend 2016

Superb. Generous and dense fruit up front, but that all goves way to an array of spices and mineral notes, so layered. Tannins are boisterous on the back end, theres some structure here that is really beginning to integrate. The grip and texture has a little rustic edge to it, love it. Ripe black cherry, wild berries almost blue, blood orange, herbs, licorice, camphor and asian spice, truffle, moss, forest, truffle, typical Etna minerality. Drinking great — 5 months ago

Contrada Rampante Sicilia Nerello Mascalese 2015

Subtle floral nose when first opened that got better as the night progressed. Bright cherries and pomegranate flavors encased in great acidity backed by rustic tannins mid-pallet made this wine an excellent pairing with a good steak. The finish exhibited a little hint of licorice or dark chocolate. It has been way too long since we have dined here and it felt very good to be there tonight. A great wine in my opinion. — 10 months ago

Passorosso Terre Siciliane Nerello Mascalese 2017

@Delectable Wine - This is the Passorosso Etna Rosso DOC, not the Terre Siciliane.

Nose is complex, with a tiny bit of barnyard, loads of smoky rock minerality, and rich cherry fruit. Chiseled in the mouth, with equal parts cherry fruit and intense stoniness, bone dry, with very good acidity. Tenaciously clings to the palate as some soft but vigorous tannins show up in the finish. Really fine.

Passopisciaro Terre Siciliane Nerello Mascalese 2016

Had back to back vintages over the last 2 weeks. This is Nerello at it’s best. Red fruit, scorched earth, smoke but still light and delicious. — 10 months ago

'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… — 7 days ago

Contrada Porcaria Sicilia Nerello Mascalese 2017

Only had the Passorosso prior. This is a much more substantial Nerello. Fresh taste red berries, a little darker fruit, smoke and burnt earth. Complex and well balanced with a little tannic backbone. Probably drunk to young but so delicious. — 7 months ago
