Juicy with red berry, kinda light and easy drinking. Great roast chicken wine. Beautiful, round flavors. Good value, I’d say.

Lightness, not to be confused with either elegance or vapidity, but rather a state of mind. With Sicilian cuisine, one prefers to have the food lead and the wine follow (albeit closely).
Brilliant crunchy red fruit, mineral-palooza, spice, and some pencil lead gripping the tongue but not too sharply. Pass the Arancini per favore!

Black cherry, cough syrup, brash acidity and tannins.. seems to all stich together with seared tuna.

Nebbiolo is a varietal I have rarely had. This one is from Sicily. It is gorgeous gemstone red in the glass, a beautiful transparent dark red. It smells of pepper, thyme and cherries. It looks so much like Pinot Noir that that is the taste one would expect. But Nebbiolo ain’t no Pinot! This wine tastes of cherries with fresh juicy acidity but then takes one on a direct journey to tannin land. Not velvety tannin but clean crisp tannins. A unique repeatable experience.

Color : Red
Wine estate : Tornatore
Designation : Etna
Name : Etna Rosso
Country : Italy
Vivino : 4/5
Note : With its garnet color, we are on a nose as mineral as fruity with menthol notes, woody and raspberry. On the palate, a structured wine with subtle and gourmet tannins. A beautiful finality, excellent.

Avec sa robe grenat, nous sommes sur un nez autant minéral que fruité avec des notes mentholée, boisé et framboise. En bouche, un vin structuré avec des tannins subtiles et gourmands. Une belle finalité, excellent.
