Opened up considerably after around half an hour. Cherry, cola/sarsparilla and slight herbal notes on the nose; on the palate the wine presents nice acidity, moderate tannins and flavors to match its aromas. Less concentrated, for better or worse, than I remember prior vintages being. While Etna reds are often compared to Burgundies, this wine actually reminded me of a high-end Beaujolais in some ways.
Overly perfumed, overly acidic and underly performance.
This is not at all costly, but it is poor. Wife dismissed it as a "grape-tainted-wine". I laughed, and agreed. Even if I drank it all, rather than pouring it down the drain. I mean, at the end of the day, after all, I'm not a barbarian :-)
But overly cherry aromas on a thin, overly acidic expression in a wine that cost almost nothing, was raised to the skies by some... At any rate, it performed no great show tonight. Tar and feathers 'R Us :-)
Great aroma. Bright berries. Let it breathe for only 20 mins. Earthy, chewy tannins, oak with dark cherries and hints of dried strawberries. High drinkability and highly recommended. Ate with homemade lasagna. Sicilian wine at its best. This region is definitely up and coming to great wine here in a America. I can't wait to grab another bottle.
