Here is a stunner straight from the north facing slopes of Sicily’s Mount Etna.
Owned by two brothers who founded Pietradolce in 2005 but whose family experience runs deeper than that, the winery is organic and tries hard to use the least amount of intervention possible in both the vineyard and during production.
A beautiful shade of medium minus starbright ruby red, this wine looks just like cherry juice. If a wine can be called pretty, this one certainly is.
It’s an especially aromatic and flavourful wine showing cherry, raspberry, strawberry and cranberry, ripe tannins with some grip, some green herbs and medicinal vine, all complimented by a medium plus finish.
WSET Very Good – drink now or hold onto this for 1-2 more.
