Not my favorite version of this grape. Light, tart and a little bitter on finish.

Pale tawny. Cherry, cranberry, bramble, sour cherry, minerality, and spice. M acid, M+ tannin, m- body, M+ intensity. Long finish. I'm a huge fan of Mt Etna wines.

A less wound up version than many I've had. Doesn't need years to unwind.

Odd to use a French word to describe a Sicilian wine, but only "aérien" will do. Impressive lightness & elegance for Nerello Mascalese. Blackberries, black plums, slate.
