[9/10] Calabretta's version of table red is an outrageous value. #IndianSummer @18Reasons

Leathery and robust for an Etna Rosso. Earthy and yummy. Plum, blackberry, tobacco, some warm spice. Nice, volcanic minerals, ferrous. From Flatiron Wines.

Acidic and deep but not too heavy.

Dry, dusty front with cherry and mandarin orange middle, slight pepper finish. It’s like an upside down wine for me. The whole palate is a bit on the lighter side. A pizza and pasta winning partner for sure!

This has been in the cellar a year plus (non-vintage) and it's in a good spot. Bright red fruit with just a touch of earthiness. Really vibrant - good afternoon drinker.

Non-vintage nerello...juicy dark berries, earthy, smokey, autumnal forest floor. Acid and drinkability factor are high. Maybe more winemakers should do this!
