2017 Cottanera 'Feudo di Mezzo' Etna Rosso
Winemaker Notes: Feudo di Mezzo is the largest contrada of the Etna DOC. Here the Nerello Mascalese exhibits an austere, dusky character with autumnal tones and a floral bouquet enhances by spice and red fruits. The palate is structured with rich tannins, destined for longevity. 100% Nerello Mascalese.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "The Cottanera 2017 Etna Rosso Feudo di Mezzo draws its fruit from one of the grand cru sites of Etna, if you care to classify the appellation vineyards in that manner. From a hot vintage, this wine shows depth and concentration that gives the wine weight and a heavy center of gravity. That makes all the difference in terms of mouthfeel. This wine finishes fermentation in oak and ages in French oak casks for up to 16 months, and the wine's volume and texture have been considerably enhanced as a result. The quality of fruit is solid, and the wine shows pretty acidity thanks to vineyard sites located at a cool 750 meters in elevation. Range: 93+"
