Winery: "Fresh, fine balanced and rich, very elegant. The grapes are macerated until the end of fermentation. The wine then continues its life in wood until bottled roughly one year after harvest. Even young it is a distinguished wine. Fresh, fragrant, beautifully slender and with a fine grip, it has a natural polish, a stage presence, as it were. And, in aging, as its weave gathers into rich complexity, it is a wine for gentlemen. It is an aristocratically liberal wine: enjoy it with whatever food you wish, as long as its properly cooked."
Trade Notes: "This layered and full-bodied Etna Rosso comes from organically farmed vineyard sites cultivated at soaring altitudes. The wine is all strawberries, cherries, sea salt, and earth. Ashy, acid-driven, and totally delicious."
