Cusumano Etna Rosso – 100% Nerello Mascalese
I love the nose on this wine. There is a slight wildness to it, with notes of bramble fruits, cherry, red liquorice and earthy undertones.
On the palate you have some earthy, fruity tones along with black cherries and a touch of pepper. It has a soft smooth but structured body from the large oak barrels. The tannin is fine with minimal grip.
This is a wine with true Italian refinement and at a fraction of what you would have to pay for a northern Italian. A wine to enjoyed on its own or perhaps with roast chicken or pigeon.
This wine is suitable for Vegetarians and Vegans.
