Erse Etna Rosso Red Blend 2020

Blend of primarily Nerello Mascalese (90%) along with Nerello Cappuccio (8%) and Carricante (2%). Bright (opaque) garnet color with a ruby core. Intense aromas of sour cherries, cloves, dried rose petals and smoke. The palate is flush with red berry fruit, minerals, basil and mint. Hint of saline on the smokey medium finish. Bright acidity, light bodied and nicely rounded tannins. Quite lively and savory. — a month ago

Erse Etna Rosso Moscamento 1911 Nerello Mascalese

Tenuta di Fessina Erse moscamento 1911
From the northeastern slopes of Etna, v. old vines grown on basalt lava & sandy soils.
Very Burgundian nose, airy, spacious with fresh red berries, some undergrowth and tree bark, a flower whiff, some baking spice. After some time this gains warmth and shows a bit more nougat and some ripe cherry. But very light & fine.
On the palate this remains light with a firm yet polished tannin frame and juicy red berry acidity. There’s nice precision here, crunchy pure fruit, a mineral bite in the back, good depth and a hint of saltiness towards the finish. Fine, juicy, elegant.
A really good alternative to Burgundian Pinots, finer and with more precision vs some other Nerellos. Really good value, too.
