Vinupetra Etna Rosso Price € 40.70
A very well-resolved and composed wine that shows deep, dark, ripe plum and cherry fruit aromas, some terrific dark, stony, minerally accents. It has a sanguine edge, really lovely depth and focus, and a bright fragrance. The palate's built on ripe and rich tannins, with really convincing depth and dark fruits, sweet, ripe and long. A terrific wine.
