Tasting Notes

This Archineri Etna Rosso is a wine of absolutely stunning precision and character. It is very reflective of its volcanic territory; with a fine, smoky intensity. Bright redcurrant, dried rose-petal and crab-apple notes accompany subtle earthy and herbal scents. This savoury complexity is supported by fine, chewy tannins and textbook cherry juiciness. This is a serious wine which demands food and will undoubtedly go the distance. A terrific release from Pietradolce.

TASTING NOTES

The 2019 Etna Rosso blossoms with pretty rose notes, wild herbs and strawberries. It’s soft and enveloping, balancing a pleasant inner sweetness with energizing acidity and tart wild berries. A gentle layer of tannin adds lovely grip, as this finishes long with notes of licorice and blueberry skins. The 2019 is a harmonious beauty that has me seriously looking forward...
