From Benanti's vineyard on the higher northern slopes of Etna. Frangelico and cherry liqueur with serious acid/tannin synergy...

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!
