Terrazze dell Etna Cirneco Etna 2012 - Sicily
Bottle size: 750ml
Warm and robust on the palate, bright ruby red colour and compact. In the mouth perfectly combines exuberance and harmony proves a splendid example of integrity and sweetness of the tannin, calibrated in an optimum freshness and flavour. Seductive and long persistence. The most perfect, elegant portrait of his homeland.
This is ageing beautifully, having seen 18 months in oak and 18 months in bottle before release. The nose is serious and gorgeous and really draws you in. There’s larger frame flavours on the palate than the Caruso, with brooding dark berry fruit and attractive cedar oak support alongside classic Etna dried herbs and minerality. Tannins are also more serious and this should live for quite a few more years yet. It’s a stunning Italian wine and comes highly recommended. It is also very rare… CR
THE ESSENCE OF AN ANCIENT LANDPalermo architect Nino Bevilacqua and partner Alessia didn’t relocate quite as faras some of the many drawn to the magic of Etna from around Italy and even wider.But for nearly a decade, these adopted Etneans have devoted themselves to therenovation, replanting and refurbishment of the old vines and their terraces thatthey bought in diverse parcels to draw together their beautiful amphitheatre-likeestate, in the premier commune of Randazzo. They’ve created a remarkableproperty, widely acknowledged in equal measure for the look and style of theestate and the regional authenticity of the wines.
