🏅 Rating: 91/100 (4,1🌟)

Clear bright ruby. First nose of perfumed red sour cherry in chocolate, dark cherry. Wet wood. Spices: black pepper. Tannins are firm, but not green.

In 20 min developed in Burgundy style similar to one of youthful Mercurey - red berries over meat and spicy tobacco, slightly green.

Shows beautifuly on the 2nd day, but fruits are more cooked.

Wine has reached its maturity and should drink nicely till 2025

Pale crimson. Red fruits Cherry and very mineral. From the Rovitello contrada on the northern side of Mt Etna. Lighter than I remember from the tasting at the Winery a few months ago. Medium - tannins. Walter Speller who tastes Italian Wines for Jancis Robinson.com says Etna is “the Burgundy of the South “. That statement certainly nails this Wine. I liked it on a 40 degree Celsius Sunday for lunch slightly chilled in Australia watching the Tennis and Cricket on TV!

Same as the Etna Rosso Entry Level but more body, older vines, and different location being on the in favour North side of Mt Etna. Same 80/20 blend as the Comtessa. Great length. Also bought 6 of this. Good potential.

В аромате сладкая земляника, сигарная коробка, выделанная кожа, вишня, стручок ванили. В развитии проявляется чуть больше сладости: сладкое песочное тесто, стружка горького шоколада. Среднетелое, во вкусе желе из вишни и малины, гвоздика, подвяленое мясо, морская галька. Сочное, долгое, с высокой кислотностью. Алкоголь идеально спрятан (14°). Вино, которое очень хочет понравится; устоять сложно. 17/20

Ashy volcanic, bright acidity, red bright fruit on the nose. Med body, med p acid, delicate but dense texture, sour red plum on the end, hint of minerality and savoryness on the second palate. Paired with octo with bonemarrow fusili. I can see this can goes well with octo.
