ETNA ROSSO P. COSTANZO
Style: MEDUIM LIGHT RED
Grape: NERELLO MASCALESE
Main characteristic: INVITING, SERIOUS & SMOKEY
A superb ethereal red from the prized northern slopes of Mt.Etna in Sicily. Not just a single cru (SANTO SPIRITO) or single vineyard, this is a single parcel (number 466, if you're asking!), vinified in very sexy (if you're a bit of a wine geek like me) wooden eggs. Medium to light in body, but serious length and minerality give all the backbone you need. I wanted to buy all they had when I visited, but they only let us have half, so enjoy it while you can.
