Benanti Serra della Contessa Etna Rosso Riserva
A single vineyard red made from co-planted Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio at 500M above sea level. The vines are pre-phylloxera low yielding old vines harvested in late September or October. After fermentation with indigenous yeast the wine is aged for 24 months in large French oak barrels with another year in bottle. Again, a light colour in the glass with aromatics of red fruit, dark cherry, violet, tobacco and herbal notes with lots of smoky minerality. Richer and fuller than the Etna Rosso with good ageing potential.
