A lovely and elegant expression of Etna Rosso, this starts with cherry and mineral notes with a lactic edge then explodes on the palate, offering deep and savory cherry, red berry and hints of herbs. A long finish shows mineral. Despite the light color, this is medium- to full-bodied and finishes with a dry note, asking for food.
This 2002 "Etna Rosso" has only been released now, in 2012, because it needed 10 years to get to the point where it can really be enjoyed.
Make sure you decant it, it will open up beautifully and please you. It reminds me of an elegant pinot noir with thee complexity of a nice burgundy.
