This is made from the Nero Mascalese grape grown on old vines in Sicily on Mt. Etna. Light ruby in color, clear and bright. The nose is great. Salinity with Bing cherries, char and slight rhubarb notes. Not unlike a more feminine Pinot Noir. Medium bodied. God acidity. On the palate, lots of depth here. Cherries, slight rhubarb, a bit of underlying char and hints of black cherries. Long finish. This is young but drinking well. It may still improve, but should make good drinking for another ten to fifteen years. Nice on its own, but better with food. This would be great with typical Pinot matches such as duck, salmon or pasta with a mushroom cream sauce.
