Tightly wound up. Dense, dark fruit. Checking back in later. Maybe we should have opened this up in 2027

Should be promising, not so much brett as the 2013. Tightly wound at this point.

Smells like Nebbiolo. Dried, tart red fruit and some potpourri, and grease. Fresh and not overbearing.

On the heavy side, interesting nose, tannic finish, taste didnt match the nose, but would have been good with a meaty ragu or something substantial to go against it

Don't be fooled by the recent rush of French wines to grace my palette. Those who know me know that I like to keep a Toscana or a Brunello around for good measure. But then @Kyle Harvey put the hard sell on Etna wines so I gave it a shot. From this point on, I will forever be on the lookout for more. The volcanic terroir and sun soaked mountainside make for the perfect climate to produce an exceptional wine. Comprised of 80% Mascalese and 20% Cappucio, the wine is remarkably well structured with loads of nuance. Fruits abound and silky tannins make this #Etna a banger.

Really good. Light bodied. Sweet dark fruit taste like ripe cherries with a nice ashy finish.
