2017 is lean, laser-focused and crunchy as a basket of fresh cranberries. Monster acidity and very taught mineral backbone. Brighter and fresher than the 2016 with comparatively subtle florality. This is an excellent match with a broad range of Pacific Rim foods.

Very light in color, smoky. Reminds me more of a Corvina, Pinot Noir or even a light Grenache disguised as Etna Rosso. Not much to it.

2015. Doesn't pretend to be anything other than it is. Bright red fruit combined with expected minerality. Too easy to drink and a great match tonight with grilled bone-in pork chops. Wish I had bought a case. Thanks to David Lynch and Ian Cauble for a great pick. At $18 more than satisfying QPR. Magnums next time.

Light garnet, hibiscus and rose, tart/fresh red cherries 🍒, which went tart on palate. A whiff of desiccated red cherries as well. White pepper and savory mushroomy on the finish. Medium body, elevated tannins, astringent, medium (plus) acidity.

A real tipical Etna Rosso. Spicey with scents of black pepper.
