Calderara Sottana Etna Rosso Nerello Cappuccio Nerello Mascalese 2015

Alluring. Redolent of crushed morello cherry, black raspberry, blood orange, mint, singed herbs, camphor, cinnamon, crushed flowers, baked earth and volcanics. The oak is there, I’d like to see a little less though. There’s an umami undertone that I find really intriguing. The level of extract makes for a pleasant mouthful but never approaches being heavy handed or clumsy, its got an ease about it. Tannins are persistent but very detailed. Gorgeous wine — 5 days ago

Cuvée della Vigne Niche Calderara Sottana Etna Bianco Carricante 2016

Such a wonderful Italian white...
Lemon curd, green tea and Reine Claude, just-right acidity, herbal and spicy, faint hints of peat, almonds and seaweed.
Great with todays’ Caesar Salad. And tomorrows’ Carbonara.

Cuvée delle Vigne Niche Etna Bianco White Blend 2017

Delectable Wine

Good full yellow. Aromas of peach, eucalyptus and pear. Luscious and ripe, with good grapefruit, white pepper, and a touch of honey in the mouth. Slightly rounder and sweeter than the 2018, boasting a long finish of chamomile and sweet herbs. (Ian D'Agata, Vinous, August 2019) — 3 months ago

Guardiola Etna Rosso Nerello Cappuccio Nerello Mascalese 2014

Incredible wine, restricted nose with some cassis hints, mouthfilling red fruit embedded with perfect acidity and a sweet finish. So balanced! This Etna cru is truly rocking! — 12 days ago

I Veroni Rosso di Toscana Sangiovese Blend 2016

#Italianwine 🍇. Blend change. Two of my fav grapes. Sangiovese and Merlot grapes make a magnificent blend. Full body, elegant and earthy fragrance., dry finish, perfect balance. So elegant! We met Luca, the winemaker. He explained his production and region. Was excited. Interesting. @pignettis — 2 months ago

Etna Rosso Nerello Mascalese Blend

2017 vintage. Excellent tension between elegance, delicate fruit, and tightly-wound tannic structure. Floral hibiscus and violet aromas with cranberry, tart cherry, pomegranate, red plum, autumn leaves, green tea, and tree bark flavors. Great streak of acidity and tannins are still quite tight. Tasty with a very long finish. — 20 days ago
