TORNATORE ETNA ROSSO 2016

12 Current Inventory

The liveliness and nuances of this special region are on full display in this wonderful and under-valued wine from Mt Etna, the active volcano in Sicily.  The wine is made from Nerello Mascalese along with a splash (5%) of Nerello Cappuccio.  There's an intensely perfumed nose of roses followed by elegant fruits of bright and dark cherries with a soft and brambly style.  A great wine to pair with roast chicken.

93 POINTS, Wine Enthusiast. "Rose, wild red berry, Mediterranean brush and crushed stone aromas form an enticing fragrance. Smooth, linear and vibrant, the ethereally elegant palate delivers crushed strawberry, raspberry, blood orange and mint alongside polished tannins and bright acidity. A tangy saline note lingers on the close."

92 POINTS, James Suckling formally of Wine Spectator. "Very finely textured with rose-petals, strawberries and light cedar. Medium body. Caressing and beautiful."
