Pietrarizzo Etna Rosso Nerello Mascalese 2015

The nose was dark with smoky minerals, dried orange, and exotic spices, giving way to crushed cherry, with hints of floral undergrowth. On the palate, I found energetic textures with zesty spiced cherry and raspberry, hints of orange zest, ginger and peppery spice. The finish was long and lively with saturating red fruits, mint and lingering minerals. — a day ago

Ripe, rich, and well extracted with a little bit of funk. Earthy and peppery. Great food wine. — 6 days ago

I Nove Fratelli Etna Rosso Red Blend 2015

What a fun find. A soulful, rustically charming side of Etna. This captures more of the nebbiolo-esque side of nerello, sleek and dusty tannin, tart cherry, tobacco, argodulce, smokey minerals. Old-school winemaking meets incredible terroir with local grapes, the essence of what makes Italy so great. — 14 days ago

Contrada San Nicolo' Etna Rosso

This wine is a pure expression of the 🌋 terroir of Cru Etna. Amazing aromatics combine with burnt cherry and dust. I haven’t met a Cru Etna I didn’t love. — 7 days ago

Etna Rosso Nerello Mascalese 2015

I think this bottle lasted 15 minutes. Light/medium bodied, fresh, but with a lot more to offer than the Rosso label implies. Would drink this again and again. — 13 days ago

Prephylloxera La Vigna di Don Peppino Etna Rosso Nerello Mascalese Nerello Cappuccio 2014

The aromas explode out of the glass like the volcano from where these grapes are grown . Ash, spice, leather jacket and cinnamon grab your nose that is reminiscent of Moe leading Curly or Larry around a room. In the mouth a palate that matches its nose. The creaminess that only true old vines can deliver. A complete package of weightless power and concentration. If I had a nit to pick it was that after 3 hours a hint of alcohol creeped in. — 12 days ago
