Aromatic Nerello with a slight bitterness. Paired decently with olives and pizza.

Dried cherries, tea leaves, and menthol aromas in the glass....pencil lead, white pepper, black fruit flavors are shrouded in mouth coating tannins...this etna rosso drinks more like a CdP than a pinot noir...very compelling...

Interesting. A little thin but let it air and it starts coming together much more. I'm happy I threw it in a decanter and waited a bit. Maybe not an excellent wine but interesting. It has elements of a full bodied wine in its chalkiness and it's acidity, but also elements of a medium bodied wine in that it has elements of roses (think Nebbiolo) and it's overall heft isn't huge. Does remind me of Nebbiolo a lot and perhaps elements of Pinot noir? Would buy again if I shared it with others. I am liking these Ethan's wines more and more. As a side note this wine doesn't have as much of the modern style of wine making that some other Etna reds I have had.
