Passopisciaro Etna Rosso 2016
Italian & Other Imported Reds »
This is 100% Nerello Mascalese, an indigenous Sicilian grape that produces pale, lean and etheral wine that is reminiscent of Pinot Noir. Palest ruby in color, approaching a rosé, this wine smells of dried flowers, mixed berries, and wet stones. In the mouth, bright berries have a sweetness to their aroma that is quite compelling, along with flavors of crushed rocks and dried herbs. Wonderfully balanced and bright, with a gorgeous texture and quite supple powdery tannins that spends 18 months in oak.
