    "Eruzione 1614" Nerello Mascalese Sicilia DOC 2017

    In the history of Etna, the eruption of 1614 is legendary, because it lasted ten years and is thus the longest recorded eruption of the still active volcano. A very impressive and fitting name for Planeta's Etna series of equally impressive wines.

    It could hardly be more autochthonous: From the hotspot on the east coast of Sicily, from the slopes of Etna, comes this excellent wine from the Nerello Mascalese grape. Bright cherry red, fine scent of raspberry and blood orange, gripping, taut acidity, silky tannin and a lively elegance with beautiful minerality. Great, long and unique! SUPERIORE.DE

    "Gorgeous sweet cherry fruit. So fragrant it is almost floral but on the palate there is a lovely dry texture, stony, almost chalky in its elegance. Extremely pure but with a savoury quality that is decidedly mineral, long. Taut and juicy with a gentle chewiness on the finish." Jancis Robinson

    "Planeta's 2017 Sicilia Nerello Mascalese Eruzione 1614 reveals a delicate and poised personality with small berry aromas and licorice followed by smoke, tar and ash. The wine delivers a subdued mouthfeel that slowly grows in intensity and length. You really taste the grape here, Nerello Mascalese, in its most naked and pure form." Robert Parker

    "Delicious and loaded with finesse, this Nerello Mascalese delivers aromas and flavors of ripe black cherry, blackberry and star anise, while smoky flint adds depth. Lithe, elegant tannins provide the polished framework." Wine Enthusiast

    "A pure and very focused Etna red with aromas of cherries, strawberries, ash, rose petals and rose stems, following through to a full body with firm, chewy tannins and a bright, tightened finish. Shows class and persistence." James Suckling
