2019 Tornatore Etna Rosso

2019 Tornatore Etna Rosso DOC

Tornatore’s Etna Rosso is 95 percent Nerello Mascalese with the balance Nerello Cappuccio, fermented in concrete and aged in large wooden casks. It’s a limpid brickish red with a clear rim; it looks somewhat older than its years. The wine is lightly volatile (in that Italian way), with a characterful hint of barnyard funk that mingles with savory and earthy aromas. The palate is juicy, red-fruited and somewhat tawny, with vanishing tannins. It’s a refreshing accompaniment for tender red sauces.
