Made with grapes from Nerello Mascalese vines of 80-90 years of age on the Northern slopes of Mt.Etna.
This Archineri Etna Rosso is a wine of absolutely stunning precision and character. It is very reflective of its volcanic territory; with a fine, smoky intensity. Bright redcurrant, dried rose-petal and crab-apple notes accompany subtle earthy and herbal scents. This savoury complexity is supported by fine, chewy tannins and textbook cherry juiciness. This is a serious wine which demands food and will undoubtedly go the distance. A terrific release from Pietradolce.
