2017 Etna Rosso Pietrarizzo

Nerello Mascalese

The Pietrarizzo Contrada, for over a century, is considered by the population of this area, one of the finest cru.  The grape variety, Nerello Mascalese, is cultivated in terraces, vinified in cement tanks and aged in large wooden barrels.

Pale ruby red. Delicate and incredibly balanced finish on the nose. There are evident scents of small red fruits, flowers, perfectly integrated with minerality and evolution worthy of a great wine. In the mouth it is of great structure but of surprising drinkability and elegance.
