Serra della Contessa Etna Rosso Nerello Blend 2013

The same 80/20 blend of the 2 Nerellos. Floral red fruits. 18 months in 500 litre used French Oak. Ungrafted vines planted in 1912 which we inspected. Could be drunk now as it is barely medium bodied but should be cellared. Very savoury. Enjoyed it and bought 6. — 10 days ago

Calabretta

Sicilia Nerello Mascalese

When the waiter seemed disappointed in my wine choice, I knew I had made the right decision...Last nt at the impressive but excessively expensive 💵 Four Seasons redo called #TheGrill, hiding within the #wine list was this fairly priced gem: leather-scented, savory '06 #Calabretta Nerello Mascalese from #Etna #Sicily. Lesson: MEMORIZE the phrase "#MountEtna" as a top defense🛡against expense-account💰 priced wine lists.🍷⚡️ — a day ago

9.1

I gave it a 91 as a complement. Most wines above 93 are spoofalated big dick wines. This is delicious in the way that you don't want too much around because it will disappear too quickly. Pure enjoyment! My kind of wine. — 10 days ago

Rovittello Rosso Etna Nerello Cappuccio Blend 2012

Same as the Etna Rosso Entry Level but more body, older vines, and different location being on the in favour North side of Mt Etna. Same 80/20 blend as the Comtessa. Great length. Also bought 6 of this. Good potential. — 10 days ago

Вишневый компот переходящий в помидоры. Ароматно, сочно, заигрывающе. Рустично. — 5 days ago

Etna Rosso Nerello Mascalese

What a joy! Be it a fennel-pork sausage pizza or a wood grilled octopus, keep pouring this 2012 Nerello Mascalese. Can you fault it? Sure. But why? — 4 hours ago

Feudo Etna Rosso Nerello Mascalese - Nerello Cappuccio

Hits all the Etna volcanic notes you expect and has a pleasant earthy smokiness. Sadly, this finished a little thin. I suspected this may have been a victim of the tough vintage and my man on the ground there, @Kyle Harvey, confirmed. He's as good an Etna follow as there is in the app. — a month ago

Etna Rosso Nerello Mascalese Blend 2014

A charry Oak note on the nose amongst the florals and red fruits. Put this one in the cellar. The cheese platter turned this into a more approachable style. More oak than the previous Nerello Mascalese. — 10 days ago

Etna Rosso Nerello Mascalese 2012

Matured in 500 litre oak barrels. More body and power than the Nerello Cappuccio but still just medium weight. The major Red grape on Mount Etna. — 10 days ago

Wow, this guy. Slight effervescence, light, earthy, spicy, don’t give a shit. Your pumpkin spice latte sucks, drink this instead. — 3 hours ago
