The acid and tannins play beautifully together in this wine. Dried red fruits linger in a long long finish. Top notch effort.

Bright and fresh with a lasting integrated balance that's sweet and salty. @MarcDeGrazia #Etna #Sicily #EtnaRosso

These wines are always so great. The only issue with them is we probably all drink them too young.

Bangin! Tons of red fruit and less blood orange than the other Crus.

Tightly wound dark fruit profiles with linear tannins balanced by high acid. Very dry and good with food.

Rose petal, quince, potpourri, sour cherry. Fragrant and potent forest scents that follow through to the finish. Has a sweet herbal component that should Integrate nicely with some bottle age. Another one to lay down for the long haul. This one speaks more of cool climate styled Nebbiolo than Pinot. Think Valtellina instead of Barolo:
