Etna Rosso Nerello Mascalese Blend 2016

Ivar M

Een wijn met een bescheiden geur, maar een kraakhelder minerale smaak. Luchtig en fris voor een rosso, weinig zwoel en haast 'crisp' te noemen. Thom was er gek van. Mooi voor los, of bij een licht voorgerecht. — a day ago

Susucaru Nineth Edition Rosato Malvasia Blend 2017

The hype is for real. A delicious vintage! Fresh strawberries and watermelon. Juicy. Refreshing. Way too easy to drink the whole bottle at once if you’re not careful! — 2 days ago

@Kai Wright keep an eye out on restaurant lists or store shelves. Here in Boston a few stores still have some and I’ve seen it on a few restaurant lists.

This by far the best Sicilian wine I ever drunk, pure, delineated, reminiscent of a great volnay. Didn’t know this guy had such old vines. This wine rocks biggest revelation of 2018 for me. My score is too low.

'a Rina Etna Rosso Nerello Mascalese - Nerello Cappuccio 2016

Girolamo Russo “a’Rina” 2016 Etna Rosso 🇮🇹 $25

Nerello Mascalese (94%) and Nerello Cappuccio are the yin and yang of red grapes that grow exceedingly well in the wild and high altitude clime atop the Sicilian volcano #MountEtna.

A hell of a bargain at about $25 as this crushes most Bourgogne/Hautes-Cotes under $50 and would give pricier versions a run for their money. It is also more complex now and ready to consume when compared to many similarly priced, well made “Langhe” Nebbiolo wines. From the @coravin this was ready to go and opened up well with 10-15 minutes in the glass.

A youthful medium ruby color, fairly transparent. The nose suggests to me a red Burgundy, possibly a Beaune or Chassagne-Montrachet red from the wildness of the Etna character. A deep underpinning of rocky minerality, hints of ash, rose petal and purple florals, with dabs of red cherry and red plum fruit, sweet spices with hints of old leather jacket and unsmoked pipe tobacco. The palate is juicy and fresh, with refined, silky, ripe tannin that are youthfully firm. Excellent density and persistence, but light as a feather. Medium+ on the finish.

Etna red wines are commonly described as having similarities to nebbiolo from Piedmonte and pinot noir from Burgundy. There are for sure some similarities, but make no mistake that Etna wines, when made well, refract the wild and volcanic Etna terroir well and are genuine in their own right. •
The complex volcanic soils of Etna, combined with some of the highest elevations for vineyards in Europe at 3,000+ feet, can produce wines with immense complexity and freshness. A sense if refinement comes across in the density without excessive weight, allowing for transparency of terroir. Most vines are trained in the traditional bush-vine method, which works well in the rocky soils that see a lot of wind and sunlight at these high altitudes.

Rovittello Etna Rosso Nerello Cappuccio Blend 2012

🏅 Rating: 91/100 (4,1🌟)

Clear bright ruby. First nose of perfumed red sour cherry in chocolate, dark cherry. Wet wood. Spices: black pepper. Tannins are firm, but not green.

In 20 min developed in Burgundy style similar to one of youthful Mercurey - red berries over meat and spicy tobacco, slightly green.

Shows beautifuly on the 2nd day, but fruits are more cooked.

Wine has reached its maturity and should drink nicely till 2025
