Rovittello Rosso Etna Nerello Cappuccio Blend 2012

Same as the Etna Rosso Entry Level but more body, older vines, and different location being on the in favour North side of Mt Etna. Same 80/20 blend as the Comtessa. Great length. Also bought 6 of this. Good potential. — 12 days ago

Faro Nerello Blend

Sommelier recommended and I was hesitant . Scott said let's do it ..... wow!!! Fantastic. So light, so complex and stood up to our pizza and pasta. Drank like a Pinot with a heavier body ....exaggerated old world earth. Yum !!! Had at buca yorkville. Order every time — 3 days ago

Allegracore Etna Rosso DOC Nerello Mascalese-Nerello Cappuccio Blend

Shipped this little gem home from Sicily! I was pleasantly surprised by its jammy, Pinot noir flavor, with a very subtle cherry taste. Not too dry or sweet. — 15 days ago

Tenuta delle Terre Nere

Etna Rosso Nerello Mascalese Blend 2014

A charry Oak note on the nose amongst the florals and red fruits. Put this one in the cellar. The cheese platter turned this into a more approachable style. More oak than the previous Nerello Mascalese. — 12 days ago

Rosso del Soprano Sicilia Nerello Mascalese Blend 2010

Nu skool Italian red, still quite young and evolved considerably over three days. Showing lovely fruit, its elegance slightly overshadowed by fruit density. Still very good, and am guessing this will age nicely for another ten years. — 16 days ago

Serra della Contessa Etna Rosso Nerello Blend 2013

The same 80/20 blend of the 2 Nerellos. Floral red fruits. 18 months in 500 litre used French Oak. Ungrafted vines planted in 1912 which we inspected. Could be drunk now as it is barely medium bodied but should be cellared. Very savoury. Enjoyed it and bought 6. — 12 days ago

Feudo di Mezzo Alta Mora Etna Rosso Nerello Mascalese 2014

Nerello Mascalese blend with Nerello Cappucio - the typical Etna blend - but a Single Contrada (ie Site) from North Etna - 80/20. Touch of Varnishy wood but overall well integrated. Medium bodied at best with savoury tannins. — 11 days ago
