2004 and aging well. Leather, earth, dried flowers, and the liquid stone finish you want from Etna.

When these bottles are good, they're great. This was one of those - crunchy red fruit and hot basalt and leather and that Etna je ne sais quoi. With sugo on tajarin, lovely.

Lots of bottle variation, this was one of the good ones. Lifted, without too much VA; funky, without too much Brett. All the red fruit and hot rocks and pretty aromatics you could want.
