2016 Etna DOC Rosso "Contrada Sciaranuova", Sicily, Italy

Clear, quite firm and deep, very fresh, herbaceous, very slightly ethereal scent of more red than black berries with notes reminiscent of black olives and a certain minerality. Again immensely fresh, juicy, almost cool fruit reminiscent of sloes, animating acid bite, fine sandy, ripe, youthful tannins, persistent, has life, clear minerality, oregano, tart spicy and nutty hints, a touch of tar, very good, tight, juicy finish with freshness and grip. Delightful.
