Rosso di Verzella Etna Rosso Nerello Blend 2016

This Sicilian wine smells and tastes like Burgundy with a volcano. The nose carries earthy-yet-floral notes on a mineral base. The palate is not like Pinot Noir, but not like Sangiovese, either. It paired much better with the involtini than it did with the tomato sauce spaghetti. I guess the grape blend - Nerellos Mascalese and Cappuccio - like eggplant better. It showed a bit of brown around the edge, not something you see often in a young wine. — 19 days ago

Tenute San Lorenzo Camporé Etna Rosso
Ruby and dusted brick colored, shiny almost oily, pickled Luxardo amarene, bitter chocolate layered with sage and mediterranean brush. The entry is soft, elegant but it expands and coats lightly yet with presence.Sandle wood and wet vulcanic soil follow olfactory, delightful.

Calabretta

Sicilia Nerello Mascalese 2008

Beguiling nose reminds me of spraypaint - but then reveals a dark, jammy cherry almost like marmelade, dark chocolate. Very interesting wine and cracking pairing with chicken tagine. — 20 days ago

Munjebel PA (Porcaria) Etna Nerello Mascalese 2014

Super juicy with tons of dark fruit and all the minerality you expect from these wines. Enough tannin to hold it all together. Great with short ribs over mushroom risotto. — 13 days ago
