Nice effort! A cross between Burgundy and Barolo with a dash of Grenache. The more Etna Rosso I drink, the better my Italian gets!

Loving Nerello-Mascalese! Like the daughter to a Nebbiolo Dad and a Pinot Mum!

Very light--reminiscent of gamay--with nice red fruit, some earthiness, and some tannins that grip. Good acidity makes it tasty and refreshing. Maybe a hint of anise? Reasonably priced too.

Delicious! Black Pepper, gravel, and red fruit. Light in body but full of flavor.

In honor of opening night of Rogue One a beautiful Benanti "Etna Rosso"...red cherry pith, licorice and gorgeous fresh flowers, sappy acidity and firm youthful tannin. Great QPR and versatile across a wide spectrum of cuisine.

Very earthy and intense dried berries, austere oakiness, blue cheese, little reductive

Looking for a Pinot alternative? So prefer to spend my $20 here. Consistently awesome vintage after vintage.
