Beautiful spiciness! Very interesting wine and stimulates a curiosity to learn more about Etna and Nerello Mascalese.

Cherry pits and dried leaves, bit of heat.

Lovely Sicilian wine for the Sicilian dinner at Lucques. Full bodied and slightly rustic. Just what you would expect. Great match for the food.

Exceptional wine. Light on its feet. Well structured with depth and complexity. Lovely blood red color with tinge of brown. Red fruits and volcanic minerality. What could be better? Very little.

Told by the sommelier at Donna Carmela that this wine just won Best Italian Red from Gambero Rosso a matter of days ago. Small production, pre-phylloxera Nerello Mascalese vines over 100 years old. Etna wine at it's best. Silky smooth chocolate, cherries, violets. So much kick ass here.
