    "Contrada Monte Serra" Rosso Etna DOC 2017

    Benanti's new red wine comes 100% from the Monte Serra site (Contrada) and from Nerello Mascalese vines about 12 years old. The maximum production per year is just 6,000 bottles. It inspires with its lively taste, enormous energy and terrific minerality and ends in a wonderfully long finish. SUPERIORE.DE

    "A harmonious, medium-bodied red, with supple tannins and a light juiciness to the plumped cherry, black tea leaf, dried fig and smoke-tinged mineral flavors. Chewy finish."Wine Spectator

    "In its second year now, the 2017 Etna Rosso Contrada Monte Serra is a slightly more fragile and subdued wine compared to its cousin from the Contrada Cavaliere. The floral impact of this wine leaves a lasting impression, and the quality of fruit veers toward wild berries and cranberries. There is a note of plush or succulent sweetness that seems very specific to this wine. The tannins are silky, and the wine is mid-weight in texture but noticeably long in persistence. This pure expression of Nerello Mascalese would pair nicely with fresh tuna and capers served with tomato sauce on pasta. Some 6,000 bottles were made." Robert Parker
