Wine AdvocateGirolamo Russo's 2015 Etna Rosso 'a Rina is 90% Nerello Mascalese and 10% Nerello Cappuccio. This is a deep and layered red wine from Etna with a savory and enriched flavor profile. The wine offers some barbecue smoke and campfire ash with dark berry fruit, balsam herb, licorice and tar. Mediterranean tones of rosemary and oregano also appear. The aromatic profile of this vintage stands apart from the rest due to its more savory and almost meaty profile.
