Ruby red color. The nose opens with scents of ripe fruit, enriched by pleasant spicy and mineral notes. Spicy plum, red cherry, minerals and violet aromas have an almost pungent quality. The palate is broad, elegant and enveloping, with a lingering flavor.

The 2014 Etna Rosso Guardiola is a wine of unique beauty and character. Having seen this stunning vineyard in person and climbed its steep ascent on the flank of the volcano, I am immediately reminded of the warm smells that come from these sun-scorched soils and the wild herbal notes that come off the scrub brush that grows in this harsh, otherworldly environment. This wine offers an immediate sense of place. The bouquet is elegant, almost ephemeral at first. It grows exponentially in intensity and complexity as the wine takes on more air in the glass. Give it the time it merits. Tangy acidity and sour cherry keep the palate very much alive. Congratulations to Cusumano of Alta Mora for this authentic taste of Etna inspiration.

Open-knit and creamy, this balanced red offer light, fine tannins, with a hint of smoky mineral underscoring ripe wild strawberry, ground pink peppercorn and citrus peel flavors. Nerello Mascalese. Drink now through 2022.
