Lamoresca Mascalisi 2016
Nerello Mascalese.. the love child of Pinot Noir and Nebbiolo?
Roses on dry earth, sarsaparilla then the bright glimmer of fresh cherries. Light bodied with a sense of inertia, the flow of carmine acidity - more course than cascade - awash with strawberries and cranberries, banked by crunchy minerality and structure.

"Fa un sole su questi bricchi, un riverbero di grillaia e di tufi che mi ero dimenticato. Qui il caldo più che scendesse dal cielo esce da sotto – dalla terra, dal fondo tra le viti che sembra si sia mangiato ogni verde per andare tutto in tralcio. È un caldo che mi piace, sa un odore: ci sono dentro anch’io a quest’odore,- ci sono dentro tante vendemmie e fienagioni e sfogliature, tanti sapori e tante voglie che non sapevo più d’avere addosso." #viticultura#viti#vita#passionevino#passioni#filari#etna🌋 #vignetidelletna#mountetna#agronomia

Rosso Sicilia!! Woww! This is an awesome wine, coming from the Mount Etna region of Sicily. Pardon the snow, as I’m sure this is the wines first time being in it 😉lol. It’s in NJ now and not Sicily! This wine is made by the great producer Andrea Franchetti. During 09’ & 10’ the Mount Etna wine region had two lighter years. Producing fine elegant wines. But in 2011 they had a great vintage! This was due to the late rains and longer season. Which helped the growers to pick grapes that were able to bring extraordinary rich wines that year.
The picture does not do the color of the wine justice, this wine once poured into the glass is bright red and starting to turn into a red brick color. Due to aging. The glass is filled with intense, gorgeous, aromas of cherries and raspberry jam. Once drank the wine is sophisticated, elegantly smooth, has floral cherry and red berry fruits, wild strawberry, anise, tobacco, and bright acidity, but balanced, with a sappy/chewy character. Good tannins and intensity, juicy, some floral notes, along with mineralogy and a hint of spice. Long lingering on the refined and elegant finish. #Salute 🍷

New Etna growers alert 🚨🍷🌋 The volcanic soils on Mount Etna are home to some of Europe’s highest vineyards. Harnessing the enormous potential to craft wines of nuance and finesse here requires vision, dedication, and careful execution. It is with tremendous excitement, then, that we announce our collaboration with Vigneti Vecchio and Masseria del Pino, two small family-run estates on Etna’s northern face.
