Pietro Caciorgna Etna Rosso, N’Anticchia 2012, Sicily, Italy
Tasting Note: A red wine made from the Nerello Mascalese (100%) grape that will challenge your expectations of what a red wine should taste like and what a white wine should taste like.
Medium-intensity ruby in color, this wine has a nose of black plum, fig and slightly-under-ripe apricot.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied wine is filled with cinnamon baking spice on the attack followed by ripe, slightly-grippy tannin.
