  • Tasting notes

    100% Nerello Mascalese, an autochthonous variety planted on the Volcanic slopes of Mount Etna, 700 metres above sea level. The, mostly ungrafted, vines are over 60 years old. The combination vine age and volcanic soils give the wine its elegance and a velvety texture. It is full bodied, but has a freshness that is a signature of vines grown at a high altitude. A classic example of Nerello Mascalese.

    The 2014 Etna Rosso Animardente shows dark consistency and a beautifully saturated garnet color. This is a solid and well-made expression from Etna that offers more plushness and richness than many of its peers. There's a greater level of concentration here. The warm and sunny conditions of this happy vintage have left their mark. Spice, dried berry, cassis, lavender flower and polished river stone all play supporting roles. The wine is elegant and poised.
