Description

Valenti – Etna Rosso “Norma” DOC 2013

If you haven’t heard of Nerello Mascalese “nair-rello mask-ah-lay-zay” is a light-bodied red wine that primarily grows on the slopes of Mount Etna in Sicily.  Nerello Mascalese takes its name from the Mascari plain in Catania. Nerello Mascalese is one of the important indigenous volcanic wines of the world. Despite Nerello Mascalese’s light-bodied profile has enough structure (tannin and acidity) to age well. DOC Etna Rosso is considered the finest example of wine made from this grape due to the protracted ripening season from high altitude vineyards.

A blend of 98% Nerello Mascalese, 2% Nerello Cappuccio, this ruby-red bottle is an explosion of ripe cherries. Morello cherry, wild herbs, vanilla and tobacco that leads into spice notes of cinnamon. Layered with chewy tannins and subtle accents of violet. With the elegance of Pinot Noir and the explosive exuberance of Zinfandel, Nerello Mascalese is delightfully easy to drink.

Cold maceration, fermentation at controlled temperature.Oak barrels from Slovenia eight months, further bottle aging for 4 months.

This opens with lovely aromas of ripe woodland berry, baking spice, crushed blue flower and a balsamic note. The juicy palate offers ripe dark cherry, crushed raspberry, licorice and white pepper alongside firm tannins and fresh acidity. The mineral driven finish closes on an anise note.

    Sorry, not my liking.
    Seems the “light” is not working for me.
