Calderara Sottana Etna Rosso Nerello Cappuccio Nerello Mascalese 2015

Alluring. Redolent of crushed morello cherry, black raspberry, blood orange, mint, singed herbs, camphor, cinnamon, crushed flowers, baked earth and volcanics. The oak is there, I’d like to see a little less though. There’s an umami undertone that I find really intriguing. The level of extract makes for a pleasant mouthful but never approaches being heavy handed or clumsy, its got an ease about it. Tannins are persistent but very detailed. Gorgeous wine — 8 days ago

Etna Rosso Nerello Mascalese Blend

2017 vintage. Excellent tension between elegance, delicate fruit, and tightly-wound tannic structure. Floral hibiscus and violet aromas with cranberry, tart cherry, pomegranate, red plum, autumn leaves, green tea, and tree bark flavors. Great streak of acidity and tannins are still quite tight. Tasty with a very long finish. — 23 days ago

Etna Rosso DOC Nerello Mascalese 2017

Sicilian wine evening, wine #3
Fresh & funky with sappy berry and tart cherry + herby, spicy whiff. Light yet edgy, with surprisingly chewy tannins yet still pure fruit. There’s a nice mineral streak to it as well. Not bad, but was more interesting in prev vintages.

My first impression was “Dujac of Etna”. Dark fruits, spice (stems?), pure. — a month ago
