Description

Wine critic James Suckling describes it as Burgundian and it certainly looks it in the glass, pouring a lovely bright and light ruby. The beauty of the Nerello Mascalese grape is on full display in this Girolamo Russo wine, made by the latest generation of the family winemaker Giuseppe Russo. A former concert pianist, Giuseppe brings the harmony and melody of this wine to the fore, bottling unfined and unfiltered after punch downs.

Smells

Gentle florals and strawberry notes, with soft cranberry, oregano and wild thyme. Quite gorgeous.

Tastes

Elegant and beautifully detailed, it has the classic structure of the volcanic Etna Rosso styles, but with a purity and grace that is uncommon. Best while still relatively youthful, this will cellar if you like your wines a little more weathered and drink through 2022.
