I'm so excited to have this wine in our range... more than usual. I never really understood the comparison of Etna to both Barolo and Burgundy, but this wine typifies this comment. The wine has the prettiness and perfume of both Barolo and Burgundy, plus the structure often seen in Nebbiolo and the oak influence seen in Burgundy. It is 100% Nerello Mascalese from Pre-pylloxera vines and it is an outstanding wine. Can be enjoyed now with a decent decant or over the next 50 years if you have the time. I'm gob-smacked at how good this wine is. - Chris L

Winery Note:

It is a bit shier and will need more time than its younger sibling. I rarely advice decanting a wine, but in this case I do. Its elegance is measured, its authority understated, its sophistication effortless. A grand wine. I suggest many savoury fine courses in very moderate quantities. Allow the wine to grow as the dinner does. From two parcels, in the midst of a larger vineyard that have survived phylloxera. They, therefore, are over 130 years old and stand on their original rootstock.
