Excellent Etna Rossi blend from several vineyards. Perfect with charcuterie

Not your flim-flam Nerello, this has some grip. Pomegranate and herbal notes. Will be gorgeous in a couple of years if I can keep my hands off it.

Good nerello with minimal oak. Needs lots of time to show itself, oddly, then iron and the volcanic minerals show. Definitely lighter than most which I appreciate.

A big hit of dark fruit on the nose, then rose petals and crushed rocks follow after. Grippy firm tannins, but I enjoyed that tannin it felt in balance. After some time in the glass it smelled like Bordeaux.

Very nice, but needs time. Quite tannic and currently hiding most of the dark fruit.
