2016 Etna Rosso "a Rina" (Russo, Girolamo)

Girolamo Russo, "a Rina" Etna Rosso, Sicilia, Italy 2016

{organic} Nerello Mascalese (w/ small percentage of Nerello Cappuccio)

DRIED GOJI BERRIES, GORGEOUS TANNINS, HIGH ACIDITY

Giuseppe Russo is quite the brave winemaker. His vineyard, certified organic, is located on the eastern end of Sicily in the shadow of Mt. Etna, one of the world's most active volcanoes. The inorganic volcanic soil provides a perfect home to Nerello Mascalese, the dominant grape in the Etna Rosso region. Please forgive us when we say this, but this Etna Rosso is erupting with flavor. Don't be fooled by its near-translucence. The gorgeous pale brick color belies a delightfully tannic mouthful of bright, earthy, acidic goodness. 

Serving Suggestion: Roasted red pepper hummus on garlic bread. Grilled poussin w/ Mediterranean spices.
