Yummy fresh and crunchy. Clean red fruit and #volcanic soil. Perfect chilled or first red or with blue fish. #etna #nerellomascalese #sicilia #sicily #italy — 3 years ago

Pistus Etna Rosso Nerello Mascalese 2014

Don't be fooled by the recent rush of French wines to grace my palette. Those who know me know that I like to keep a Toscana or a Brunello around for good measure. But then @Kyle Harvey put the hard sell on Etna wines so I gave it a shot. From this point on, I will forever be on the lookout for more. The volcanic terroir and sun soaked mountainside make for the perfect climate to produce an exceptional wine. Comprised of 80% Mascalese and 20% Cappucio, the wine is remarkably well structured with loads of nuance. Fruits abound and silky tannins make this #Etna a banger. — 7 years ago

Past peak. Off balance with extremely high abv. Some interesting secondary notes that were quite faint. #passopisciaro #nerellomascalese #etna #mtetnawine #scicily #ctbucklinwine — 7 years ago

Showing much better than the 2012. Color was vibrant. Great mix of fresh blue and red fruit as well as white pepper and herbs. Palate was restrained and well structured with a hint of sourness. More drying than unctuous. Fine finish. #passopisciaro #etna #mtetnawine #sicily #italy #nerellomascalese #ctbucklinwine — 7 years ago

MAGMA Etna Nerello Mascalese 2014

Not sure this day would ever happen but alas, the magic of Etna and the magic of Cave Ox in Solicchiata, we decided that it was time - and on a day when the producer invited us over to join him at his table, we got to experience this living, ever evolving tribute to Etna, coming from 100+ year old prephylox vines from 910 m ASL from the "Grand Contrada" of Barbabaecchi. Not to mention the kick ass 2014 vintage. It was intoxicatingly fragrant with earthy red fruits erupting from the glass, dense, concentrated, complex and constantly evolving flavors with spice, leather, and seductive dark cherry, and a dreamingly long mouthfeel that lingered and danced along the palette. Lava in a bottle. What a memory. Thanks Frank 🍷🌋 #frankcornelissen #etna #CaveOx — 7 years ago
