Why do we love this wine?

This is a wine for the kid in you that still loves volcanoes, explosions and all things fantastically delightful - the same one who’s grown up to become the adult who loves all things fragrant, unusual and high quality.

So we’re at the foot of Mt Etna. The vines are over 40 years old. The grapes are nerello mascalese for the most part, with “small batches of other local grape varieties”. The wine’s aromatic and earthy, peppery but fine and deep. Raspberry and citrus with black tea and bergamot, too. Juicy and elegant but savoury. For Barolo lovers who want something with even more fragrance and a lot lighter, but still drying and complex and most importantly - impeccably poised.

It’s the first time Giovanni Rosso have made this wine, and whoa, this bodes well. Lap it up before people cotton on to how good this stuff really is.
