Bright red; this is the perfect color of an authentic Etna Rosso blend. Spicy, perfumed nose of minerals and sour red cherry is lifted by floral notes. Clean, juicy redcurrant and pomegranate flavors have a tactile and saline bent. Very elegant and unlike any other reds made by Donnafugata, this is very lifted, vibrant and light on its feet. Very well done for a first time wine.

Dried hibiscus, fruit tea, raspberries, fresh herbs and Indian spices. Medium-to full-bodied with a tight and composed tannin structure and a crunchy, medium-chewy finish. Drink now.

Rose, red berry and Asian incense aromas lift out of the glass on this fragrant red. Made entirely with Nerello Mascalese, the elegant palate delivers sour cherry, pomegranate, exotic spice and saline mineral notes alongside pliant tannins and bright acidity.
