The Idda 2019 Etna Rosso shows depth, length and everything in between. This 2019 vintage benefits from a long and slow growing season, just what the native red grapes of Etna prefer. The spring season saw a lot of rain for ample water reserves, and the weather then transitioned to a dry but not too hot summer season. The late harvest helped to develop structure and linearity in the wine that you taste, thanks to bright fruit nuances of blackberry, plum and a touch of candied orange peel. The wine is light, vertical and otherwise void of any residual heaviness. It finishes with pretty accents of toasted nut and earthy terracotta
Color : Vibrant, ruby red.
Aroma : Mineral notes bound to sweet aromas, like marzipan, but with tart black cherry and mulberry rising from the glass. The wine shows notes of candied citrus fruits, but also soft herbal tones, such as fresh tomato leaf and oregano.
Taste : This wine has a clear expression of ripe and sweet fruit on the palate. The finish leads off with Intriguing minerality, with a hint of flint. A medium structure with good acidity makes it enjoyable and refreshing.
