2020 Masseria Setteporte, Etna Rosso (RT92+) From this certified organic winery comes a tasty, value-priced Etna Rosso crafted with a blend of 95% Nerello Mascalese and 5% Nerello Cappuccio. The terraced vineyards of this small, family owned winery are positioned on the southwest corner of Mount Etna, where lava sands provide an excellent terroir for expressing a darker, richer version of Etna Rosso than what is planted on the northern slopes, where lighter, more laser focused wines are produced. Aged in 100% stainless, which allows the delicious fruit to shine through with notes of deeply ripe Marasca cherry, black plum, volcanic scruff, and hints of spice. The aromatic profile is decidedly terroir-driven while the palate delivers ripe, round fruit, lovely fresh acidity, and soft tannins. An excellent value in the increasingly spendy Etna Rosso category, this is highly recommended! Drink now-2028
