2013 Fattorie Romeo Del Castello - Vigo Etna Rosso (93 pts) - Let's just say this wine is not that much darker than her Rosato. Medium intensity on the nose. Notes of fresh red fruit (strawberries, red currants, pomegranate), floral notes (lilac), oak notes (cedar) and mineral (smoke). Medium body, medium+ alcohol, medium+ acidity, and medium fine grained and well integrated tannins. The palate is even more intense than the nose with a medium+ intensity. This wine is showing a lot of restraint and balance to be unleashed on future drinkers. The palate leads with ripe red fruit, transitions to a savory mid palate of smoke and leather, but ends with a long mineral finish like licking a wet rock riding on the backbone of solid razor of acidity. This wine is a baby and has many years ahead. It's got so much potential and will only improve over the next 10 years. Truly a producer to take note of on Etna. #wineterroir #winereview #winelover I will be stocking up on the 2015s when they come to market.
