2017 Etna Rosso, Pietradolce, Sicily, Italy

Regular price £111.00

"Simple and fine, the 2017 Etna Rosso by Pietradolce shows an elegant but approachable personality. You get small-berry aromas with smoke, ash and crushed stone. The mouthfeel is thin and compact, but those small-berry flavors do last. I'd suggest a pairing with thin crust pizza or easy pasta dishes at home. This is a pure expression of Nerello Mascalese aged in large oak casks for three months. Some 15,000 bottles were made." Monica Larner

14.5% ABV.

Established in the Sicilian town of Castiglione di Sicilia on the Northern slopes of Etna, Pietradolce has become one of the finest wine producers from Sicily in a very short time. Their flagship , an Etna Rosso wine called Vigna Barbagalli, has already received 100 points from James Suckling. There are 11 hectares of vineyards at the Pietradolce winery, between 600-900 feet above sea, with three plots spanning two different territories (Rampante and Zottorinoto).
