Tasting Notes

Ruby red with garnet highlights. Nose: floral hints, spicy notes and scents of licorice, rose hips, dried fruits; a very complex flavor profile that evolves further into the glass in elegant tertiary aromas. Palate: on the palate displays an intact freshness and soft tannins, not yet entirely tamed; an elegant, structured, harmonious taste with a long finish

Pairing

excellent with mature cheese, tagliatelle with Porcini mushrooms, ragout of white meat, game birds, black pork sausage.

Etna Rosso Riserva DOC “Monte Gorna” 2012 - Nicosia: Why we like it

This reserve red wine is produced from Nerello Mascalese grapes cultivated on the high slopes on Monte Gorna vineyards. Nerello Mascalese is the main native variety of Etna. The volcanic terroir gives it unique characteristics and a great minerality. The low yields in the vineyard, the hand picking into crates and the careful selection of the grapes makes this Etna Rosso a very elegant wine. The ageing for almost 4 years, with a stay of 24 months in French oak barriques (second and third passage), creates a very complex flavor profile.
