Vino ottimo da 95 punti ma... il cabernet che ci è finito dentro per caso?!? Azzo! Troppo evidente. Comunque come vino è buonissimo. Come nerello è inopportuno.

One of the marquis producers on Mount Etna, Benanti's Stella della Contessa is their flagship red, made mostly of Nerello Mascalese (80%) and the rest Nerello Cappuccio. This has some age being a 2004, but still shows plenty of fruitful youth with a dose.of tertiary. Drink this now but it should round out with another 2-3 years of age. Plenty of fruit, the tannins are fully integrated and silky. There is a slight bitter note that sticks out, and not exactly like a ripe blood orange, it reminds me more of menthol. #etna #sicily #benanti

Lovely dried herbs, savory sanguinity (is that a word?), one of the best Etna Rosso wines I've tried yet.

Earthy cherries, nice spice and deftly balanced. Really like this one
