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 :-)
