Donnafugata `Sul Vulcano` Etna Rosso 2017
Lovely Nerello. It’s easy to see why it’s considered in the same breath as Nebbiolo and Pinot Noir. Svelte, fresh and balanced.
Pale ruby red in the glass, this wine offers an elegant bouquet of wild berry notes, floral scents and delicate nuances of cinnamon and nutmeg. These characteristics continue through to the palate, supported by freshness and harmonious tannins. The finish is long and balanced.
