NEW! Pietro Caciorgna 'Nanticchia', Etna Rosso, Sicily, Italy 2015

42.00

“This is one of the most beautiful wines made on Etna today.” - The Wine Advocate on a previous vintage (the 2015 has yet to be reviewed) .

Pietro Caciorgna’s Nanticchia 2015 has one of the most sensational aerobatic displays of aroma of any red wine that we know! It’s a looping parabola of peach and apricot fuzz, plum skins, cherry blossom, terracotta, tomato and a heady whiff of the crater rim. Surely the ultimate expression of Etna Rosso. Its pale colour, like the first wash of a watercolourist’s sunset, and its sylphlike texture belie a palate that is packed with sweetly succulent summer pudding fruits, set against an impression of cold embers and crushed pumice rocks. If you like headily aromatic Italian reds, whether Nebbiolo or Ruchè or Pinot Nero, then this has to be on your list of ‘must buys’ and even at £42.00 a bottle is an absolute steal. Give us this over any Barolo any day. It’s just sensational! Sourced from very old pre-phylloxera Nerello Mascalese vines in the Contrada Marchesa near Passopisciaro. 13.5% alc. 18 months in oak. Drink now-2025.
