Nerello Mascalese

Davide Bentivegna

Kaos Etna Rosso Nerello Mascalese 2016

Flirty aromas of blackberry and blueberry jam, blackcurrant leaf and violets come charging right out of the gate. Balsamic electricity running through a palate of blueberry juice. Gentle prickly tannins.

A lively, sapid expression of high altitude Etna nerello mascalese, ready to drink now.

Wine Wednesday Focus group at The Tasting Room.

My contribution. Grippy, but more polished than I anticipated. Pleasantly surprised.

Etna Rosso Nerello Mascalese 2016

Lightness, not to be confused with either elegance or vapidity, but rather a state of mind. With Sicilian cuisine, one prefers to have the food lead and the wine follow (albeit closely).
Brilliant crunchy red fruit, mineral-palooza, spice, and some pencil lead gripping the tongue but not too sharply. Pass the Arancini per favore!

MunJebel 7 Vino da Tavola Rosso Nerello Mascalese

Clear garnet with a slight haze. Red apple, pomegranate, and brick on the nose. Firm acidity and very firm tannins intro the medium palate of red apple peel, pomegranate, and terra cotta. Very firm tannins. A no holds barred Cornelissen joint that will support your heartiest of fare. Just be aware that this isn’t your father’s Italian wine. Also, very firm tannins. Drink at one sitting now through 2027. — 11 days ago
