"Pinot Noir planted in that part of their Etna vineyard that is higher than 700 m and hence outside of the Etna denomination.
Mid ruby. Backward yet with depth to it. With aeration, pure raspberry fruit and hints of tomato leaf. Some new oak, supple and concentrated. A little like Nerello Mascalese with soft, bitter tannins. Looks easy-going but not showing its true self just yet. Better to hang on to this for another year or so. 17+/20 points. (WS)"

Vinous Reverie Notes
The grapes, harvested in late September, start fermentation into red wine through a long maceration on their skins at a low temperature. After alcoholic and malolactic fermentation, the wine is poured in small tonneaux of French oak, with a capacity of 500L, where it remains for at least 1 year. It is then left to rest in-bottle for at least a year. Tasting Notes: This pale ruby wine is fragrant, with notes of red fruits interlaced beautifully with pleasant, spicy notes. It is fresh with fine tannins, and harmonious on the palate.
