A dusty mix of rose, black raspberry, crushed ashen stone and underbrush forms a captivating bouquet as the 2015 Etna Rosso Prephylloxera blossoms in the glass. Like a veil of pure silk, it washes across the palate, seamlessly leaving mineral-stained red berries under an air of inner rose and sage. The 2015 tapers off structured and refined, tugging at the senses with grippy tannins while resonating on hints of licorice and lavender. Another year or two of cellaring is recommended for the full effect. That said, this deep blend of 80% Nerrelo Mascalese and 20% Nerello Cappuccio is some pretty compelling stuff. It's made from vines that are between 130-140 years old, planted in sandy, volcanic soils at 900 meters. The wine refines for four years in 500-liter Slavonian oak barrels.
