Vitiano Rosso Umbria Sangiovese Blend 2012

More aged wine. Seems to be tonight’s theme. This France meets Italy in the blend. Label says it was $12. Not sure where I got it though. Dark maroon with a rusty edge. Aromas are the dust, smoke and old book smells of older Cab/Merlot. Maybe a slight whiff of ball-point pen ink. Flavors are also aged/oxidized. But just slightly. Still has fresh berry-cherry vibes. Bittersweet with a hint of charred meats or tar. This is a fun blend that aged well and has an elegance making it well worth the $12 it cost me. — 15 days ago

Etna Rosso Nerello Mascalese Blend 2021

This was a great pairing with a salad with pine nuts Parmesan and dried cherries with balsamic dressing. Not tannic but good balance. Light but not without body. — 19 days ago

Etna Rosso Nerello Mascalese 2020

A Sicilian gem an again a wine lovers red; ashy, red fruit, acidic. Esoteric Red but would also pair extremely well with casual food… — a month ago

Girolamo Russo

'a Rina Etna Rosso Nerello Mascalese - Nerello Cappuccio 2020

Bright, barely discernible as a red… touch of smoke, tart cherry, chewy green stem-thing but it works. Rustic, lifted, leaving just a hint of heat as it caresses on the way out. Not jammy, not lush, but great food accompaniment. — 20 days ago

Pithos Rosso Vittoria Nero d'Avola Frappato 2015

A bit volatile initially but settled into a nice lifted cherry / grounded baked earth classic Sicilian vibe. This is OG and never disappoints (that bottle shape though…) — 12 days ago
