A touch of oxidation, a boatload of acidity, and VA right up to that line where it's not flawed, just Italian. Juicy, great Nerello fruit and Sicily all the way. Bargain.

Eminently gulpable. The kind of wine that barely exists in the New World.

All table wine should be this good and distinctive. Screams Sicily, lifted aromas and crunchy bright red fruit. Super value wine.

Good value Etna table wine, accessible to diehard Pinot fans (like my friend I'm drinking it with). Better with food!

The younger version of Calabretta and worthy. While it doesn't possess the depth many other characteristics remain making this an enjoyable drink
