Firriato Etna Rosso 2013
Colour: bright ruby red with intense purple nuances. Nose: it opens with typically mineral notes, mature and elegant, leading on to alternate with intense and clearly defined aromas of cassis, blueberries, plum jam, black cherries, liquorice, pepper and dried violets. Palate: well balanced and harmonious, it opens with energy and vitality, rich, warm and refined, with smooth, good quality tannins; notable for its long aromatic persistence and satisfying and 'juicy' finish. Characteristics: a classic wine that fully expresses the terroir and its exceptional properties derived from its location around Etna, the most important active volcano in Europe. It boasts exceptional clarity and an admirably austere and indomitable character, combined perfectly with an exquisite taste profile.
