The new vintage of Etna Rosato just arrived Its balance and texture are fantastic. This is what owner Marc de Grazia has to say:

“Nerello Mascalese, wonderfully versatile grape, proved to be just the right stuff. Not an easy wine to make, however. In fact all the opposite. In trying to find balance, you walk a thin line. The Platonic ideal, as I see it, would be the rosé that has the body of a white and the soul of a red, . Anyway, that’s what I’m looking for: a wine that’s joyful without being frivolous; that has tension, but is not austere. And I feel we come close. Our Etna Rosato is bright and vibrant, but never superficial. The joy it delivers has sophistication. I’ve found out that it ages beautifully, not that there is any reason to age it. But when it does, the complexity is quite unexpected and remarkable in a rosé. Fish, poultry, soups, pasta, prosciutto and cantaloupe, figs and salame, bread and olives and cheese. You name it.”

2021 Tenuta delle Terre Nere Rosato: Bright pink. Freshness and complexity with plum and flowers accented with spice. The net effect is luminosity with refined joy.  Very Good-Excellent  23.99/bottle
