Exceptional Nerello from Foti. Eye opening, quite haunting aromatics and delightfully silken texture. Rocky. Will be seeking more of this out in 2018.

Volcanic velvet. It’s hard to say more about this gorgeous balance and elegant roundness. After so many years, this 2002 vintage shows how skilled as a vigneron is Salvo Foti.

One of the true souls of Etna, from a centenary vineyard, grapes are Nerello Mascalese, Nerello Cappuccio, Alicante and Francisi. Iper-organic philosophy, a real masterpiece. Amazing wine!

Etna! Earthy, mushrooms, smoky, light spice, bold flavors, good acidity. Fun wine.

Dark. Forest floor, iron, dried mushroom, leather. Smells like a Gevrey Chambertin, in the mouth reminds me of Barolo. This is One powerful glass of Nerello!

Much better than the Manenti. Good amount of fruit, nice tension and finish.

2006. The earliest vintage I have tried. Maybe the most epic. Unbelievable transparency of terroir.
