Girolamo Russo 'a Rina 2016
|Region||Italy, Sicily, Etna|
The 2016 Etna Rosso 'a Rina is a little more subdued in this vintage compared to past releases. However, you are most definitely treated to the impressive quality and sheer energy that always identifies the wines of this remarkable estate-by far one of my favorites on the volcano. The mouthfeel is tight, linear and full of vibrant energy.
Fresh earth and mineral notes provide an aromatic overtone for flavors of ripe cherry and strawberry fruit in this well-knit and chewy, medium-bodied red. Fresh and creamy, with hints of dried fig, anise and herb lingering on the finish. Drink now through 2026.
