I admit to a deeply abiding love for Etna Rosso. I’ve rarely met a Nerello Mascalese I didn’t like. But like doesn’t begin to describe my affection, nay, obsession with the single contrada wines of Passopisciaro. Guardiola stole then show last night with its usual forest berries filtered through pulverized rock and the scented with herbs and flowers.

Different Contrada but still 100% Nerello Mascalese. More perfume than the Chappemacine. Still bags of red fruits and minerality nailing the Etna style.

Big, bold Nerello Mascalese. Probably needs more time but I was anxious to try it. This is Nerello on steroids. Big, complex and so good.
