    "Contrada Dafara Galluzzo" Rosso Etna DOC 2018

    The Nerello grapes (100% Mascalese) come from the northern slope of Etna from plots of the Contrada Dafara Galluzzo in the Rovittello district. Opens in a delicate ruby red, the nose then fine, heady, spicy, it reveals a pretty basket of red fruits after a few minutes of aeration. Initially closed on the palate, it only gradually reveals its flavour facets, then medium pressure in the middle, at the same time very finely structured and with almost Burgundian finesse and elegance. The finish is harmonious and of excellent length. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Mediterranean scrub, plum and blue flower aromas mingle together in the glass along with whiffs of moist earth. Savory and refined, the elegant, accessible palate delivers juicy black cherry, wild raspberry, star anise and saline mineral notes framed in polished tannins. It's fresh and balanced, with bright acidity." Wine Enthusiast

    "The 2018 Etna Rosso Contrada Dafara Galluzzo is distinctly savory, notes of smoked meat and crushed ashen stone giving way to masses of balsam herbs and black raspberry. It's silky and pliant in feel, displaying depths of mineral-tinged blackberries, savory spice and fine tannins mounting toward the close. This becomes almost salty through the youthfully chewy finale, leaving a sense of umami and gobs of black fruit to linger. The Dafara Galluzzo will require a few years of cellaring to soften."
