Etna Rosso Nerello Mascalese Blend 2018

Everybody is raving about Nerello from the etna so had to try! Wine is a lot lighter on its feet than expected, fresh with a good acidity. On opening sour cherry, cranberry and a rosemary note. Not directly a huge fan. After a while more earthy and minerality comes into play and make it a lot more interesting. And even the barrel is somewhat noticeable. So after a hesistant start this wine makes me want to explore more! — 6 days ago

Murgo Etna Bianco Carricante Catarratto

70% Carricante 30% Catarratto from Sicily and yes I needed Jancis Robinson et al. to tell me what those grapes are. Dry with nice aromatics (curry, cumin, dried red pepper) and minerality. If you had told me this was Vermentino I would have believed you. Very nice and yes @Brendan Devine it’s natty. — 14 days ago

9.1

Loved the energy in this fresh, crisp, mid-weight Nerello. Crunchy red fruit with a sappy texture and a gravelly / rock dust finish. Brisk and lively. Zips and zings, feels very alive. Excellent effort. — 11 days ago

Rovittello Etna Rosso Nerello Mascalese 2012

I was looking for the Contessa but couldn’t find it in the cellar so ended up with the Rovittello which I had only 9 weeks ago in November 2020. A savoury cherry nose with that Etna minerality - earthy and touch of volcanic dust. A light to medium weight palate. The finest of sandy tannins - oak almost totally integrated. An excellent wine with lamb mince. Bought at the winery several years ago on our Sicilian trip. Seems like a lifetime ago. — a month ago
