2020 Terra Costantino de Aetna Etna Rosso Sicily
Winemaker Notes: Beautifully balanced, rustic and elegant – the versatility of this wine encapsulates the fervour that surrounds Etna’s boutique producers. Introduce yourself to Sicilian wine, and believe the hype. Fruit comes from the Terra Costantino estate’s carefully tended Certified Organic vineyard on the southeast slope of Mount Etna. Grapes are harvested by hand, and wine ages in stainless steel and large oak casks prior to bottling.
James Suckling - "Pale yet flavorful red with aromas of sour cherries, dried herbs and tangerine peel. Medium-bodied with chalky tannins and tangy acidity. Vibrant and wild. 90% nerello mascalese and 10% nerello cappuccio. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold."
Wine Spectator - "Balanced and fresh, this light- to medium-bodied red features fine, taut tannins and citrusy acidity, which frame a well-spiced range of plump cherry, Mediterranean scrub, tea rose and minerally iron and smoke. Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio."
