Tenuta delle Terre Nere, Etna Rosso 2011
Opened yesterday – a bit of Brett/earth yesterday has morphed into a sexy hazelnut, cherry liqueur, sausage and spice nose. Also has a wild resinous herb character that reminds me of some wines from the Languedoc.
Perky with strong acidity and flavors of tart cherry and skillet sausage. Lean and bright with acid/tannin synergy puckering the front of the mouth.. Interesting stuff and great with lighter grilled meats.
$25 from FnB in Scottsdale. Think this must be 100% Nerello Mascalese
