Chariming, wine from Etna. Not very lasting, but intense.

Very interesting wine. Dark wild berry, rich mineral almost like iron or scorched earth, Garam Masala spice, lightly dried violets and herbs. Medium plus acid and tannins. Very nice young. Would be interesting to see how it develops.

Crunchy ripe cherries and clean, stony minerality. Full bodied, relatively lean, with good fruit/acid balance. A teensy bit hot in the finish.

Translucent ruby red, soft cherry fruits with a mineral edge and with a nice finish. Very easy drinking and a perfect pairing with pasta arrabiata.

Nice fruit and minerality that finishes with herbal notes and pronounced acidity. This is one enjoyable Etna!
