I Custodi

Ætneus Etna Rosso Nerello Blend 2015

Your friend comes back from Hawaii and they bring you a lava rock which they’re not supposed to because it’s bad, bad, very bad luck but you always had a thing for risking the superstitious odds and not sending along chain emails, so you’re into this bad luck rock. They also bring you a lei with less flowers than you’ve seen on leis at the dollar store but you put it on and crack your best pseudo smile for them because dammit they love you and they did what they could, short of bringing you on their romantic vacation. Honestly if they did bring you, you know you’d get into one of your “moods” and not only would you be a hard third wheel, you’d also be named the pity party hostess of the year. Cherries, ash, dried flowers, tannic structure like a good skipping stone. — 9 days ago

Etna Rosso DOC Nerello Mascalese 2015

Nice but very fresh. Takes 10mins or so to open up. Acidity and mi reality play well together. Could easily smash a few bottles — 9 days ago

Rosso di Verzella Etna Rosso Nerello Blend 2015

Tastes like fruit stored in a fine wine cellar: musty, rocky, slightly salty, and Goldilocks as in not too sweet and not too dry. Good overall value. Great with yeasty homemade calzones, ricotta, mozzarella, roasted veggies, and marinara with anchovies and herbs from the garden. — 21 days ago

Serra della Contessa Etna Rosso Nerello Blend 2011

Wow. The great vintage really stands out with this Cru, aromas of earth and rose petals jump out of the Zalto, the palette is savory as well with tobacco and mature cherries. Man need to find more of this Contrada from this vintage. 🌋🍷 — 23 days ago
