Etna Rosso 2017

91 points, “The 2017 Etna Rosso (made with 80% Nerello Mascalese and 20% Nerello Cappuccio) offers a very smoky and ashy bouquet that tells you, without any doubt, that this is a wine from the mighty Etna volcano.” – Wine Advocate

An explosive eruption of rose petal, violets, blueberries, cherry, raspberry, wild strawberry, orange zest, leather, peppery biltong, vanilla, earth and sea salt. This red is the kind of classic Etna Rosso – with its elegance, intensity and medium body – that gives Burgundy a run for its money. A wonderful partner to pappardelle with wild mushrooms, sundried tomatoes, game and truffles.

“Benanti’s wine making history is synonymous with Etna wine making history. In fact, the hard work and excellent wines produced at this historic winery are what catapulted this unknown part of Sicily to the oenological forefront. Benanti’s wines are among the best made on the volcano today.” – Wine Advocate

The Benanti winery was founded in 1988 on the northern slope of Mount Etna. The family were one of first to truly believe in viticulture here on the mountain. Although the Etna DOC appellation was longstanding, nobody had really made high-quality fine wine on it. Driven by a love of the local terroir and indigenous grape varieties, Giuseppe Benanti set about making his game-changing wine. Benanti is now one of the most respected names in Sicilian wine.
