Passopisciaro Terre Siciliane Nerello Mascalese 2013

Charles (Chad) Bucklin

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 — 10 months ago

Past peak. Off balance with extremely high abv. Some interesting secondary notes that were quite faint. #passopisciaro #nerellomascalese #etna #mtetnawine #scicily #ctbucklinwine — 10 months ago

Fattorie Romeo Del Castello

Vigo Etna Rosso DOC Red Blend 2007

A wine that combines nature, art, terroir and an amazing story. From the volcanic island of Sicily on the slopes of Mount Etna, Fattorie Romeo Castello had lava flows in a vineyard that they thought was lost after an eruption. Years later the vines pushed through the lava and the resulting fruit from this lava vineyard make this special wine. Thank you #MonicaLarner for bringing this wine to my attention through your pioneering critical writings.
Now for the wine notes:
The color is a slightly hazy garnet red color.
The nose is spectacular, revealing the complexity inherent in this wine. Notes of ash and volcanic rock give way to ripe bing cherry, a meaty roast beef streak, with subtle hints of roses, herbs and tar.
The palate is just as complex, showing power and elegance in the intensity of flavor, while plenty of acidity and firm, youthful tannin add length and freshness.

Susucaru Sesta Edition Rosato Malvasia Blend 2013

Bitterness like stems and blood orange, with a rock, mineral core with grapefruit and strawberry fruit, the color of this wine gets me every time with its glowing, pulsating ruby red hue! It's alive! #nofilter #susucaru #cornelissen #etna #sicily #extreme #naturalwines #nerellomascalese — 2 years ago
