Nonna Aurelio Etna Rosso

16/20 (89/100) Легкий аромат с нотами ягод кизила, жимолости и малины. В первом носе сильный тон летучки, но после пары часов аэрации аромат приходит в баланс. Тельное с высокой, острой кислотностью. Танины интенсивные, сухие поначалу, но также смягчаются после аэрации. В целом, симпатично. — 3 days ago

Etna Rosso Nerello Mascalese 2016

Nebbiolo is a varietal I have rarely had. This one is from Sicily. It is gorgeous gemstone red in the glass, a beautiful transparent dark red. It smells of pepper, thyme and cherries. It looks so much like Pinot Noir that that is the taste one would expect. But Nebbiolo ain’t no Pinot! This wine tastes of cherries with fresh juicy acidity but then takes one on a direct journey to tannin land. Not velvety tannin but clean crisp tannins. A unique repeatable experience. — 14 days ago

Contrada Sciaranuova Etna Rosso Nerello Mascalese 2016

Same grape same winemaking. Spicier more red fruited. Stemmy. Just... different. More tannin? Different style tannin? Can’t decide which site I like better. Excellent study in terrior — 20 days ago

It’s alive!!
Started out juicy and after hours opened changed personalities a few times, ending brambly. One of the benefits of natural wines... you get multiple taste experiences.

As always, very good, careful hand in the cellar is evident, but need a little bit more vibrance for me - perhaps as a lower elevation Contrada, ripeness and alcohol are overpowering nervous acidity — 17 days ago

I think it just need more time. Even Marco will tell you that the 2014s are in an odd phase right now.

@boyd pearson thanks. Good to know my ‘18s would have been interesting 5 years later. Maybe I’ll lay down a few

Lots going on here. The nose is magnificent—sandalwood, tobacco, leather predominant over the fruit. On the palate one can taste the volcanic terroir. Fun wine. — 8 days ago

2020 spring. Super for a “basic” Etna rosso - a great thing considering how prices are going for single contrada wines — 12 days ago
