Archineri Etna Rosso

Sicily, Italy

100% Nerello Mascalese. Vines are 40-80 years old. Aged 14 months in French, fine-grained oak barrels that have been lightly toasted. The oakiness of the wood never comes to the foreground: it sits behind the richer, heavier Nerello fruit, and is held together by tense, nervous acidity.
