Kaos Etna Rosso Nerello Mascalese 2016

Flirty aromas of blackberry and blueberry jam, blackcurrant leaf and violets come charging right out of the gate. Balsamic electricity running through a palate of blueberry juice. Gentle prickly tannins.

A lively, sapid expression of high altitude Etna nerello mascalese, ready to drink now.

Contrada Rampante Etna Rosso 2016

100% Nerelllo Mascalese from very old vines (80+ years) grown on the north slope of the Etna. Bright red with crunchy red cherry, plum, spice and smoke. Fruit is less prevalent in the mouth and the mineral component is more evident. Still big tannins with good acidity. Texturally very pleasing with long finish — 4 days ago

Munjebel Etna Nerello Mascalese

I hate the hype mainly because it has made this wine more expensive and harder to find. One of those few wines so unique I’ve never tasted anything like it. Bold fruits with deep leather/tobacco/clay. Smokey and rich. None of the natural wine flaws. Just wish there was more to go around. — 5 days ago

MunJebel 7 Vino da Tavola Rosso Nerello Mascalese

Clear garnet with a slight haze. Red apple, pomegranate, and brick on the nose. Firm acidity and very firm tannins intro the medium palate of red apple peel, pomegranate, and terra cotta. Very firm tannins. A no holds barred Cornelissen joint that will support your heartiest of fare. Just be aware that this isn’t your father’s Italian wine. Also, very firm tannins. Drink at one sitting now through 2027. — 20 days ago

Susucaru Rosato Malvasia Blend 2018

Always solid. Liking the 2018 more than the 2017. I have 2 more bottles—will be interesting to see how this develops. — a month ago
