Cottanera Barbazzale 2019
|Region||Italy, Sicily, Etna|
On the nose, aromatic scents of raspberries, blackberries and wild flowers intertwine with mineral shades. The palate is fresh and aromatic, balanced by good tannins.
The 2019 Etna Rosso Barbazzale keeps you coming back to the glass with a woodland-inspired display of wild berries, lavender, wet stone and undergrowth. It's soft-textured and fleshy in feel, maintaining balance through a pure display of fresh strawberries laced with sweet spice and florals. Round tannins frame the expression nicely as the Barbazzale tapers off to a dusting of violet candies. This blend of 90% Nerello Mascalese and 10% Nerello Cappuccio is easy to like, showing quite well today, and it is a fantastic bargain.
