Cantine Russo, Luce di Lava, Etna, Sicily, Italy 2008
Meaning ‘light of lava’, this red comes from vineyards on the slopes of Mount Etna and is a blend of indigenous varieties Nerello Mascalese (80%) and Nerello Cappuccio (20%). The result is an easy-going style with tannic bite, mouthfilling berry fruit and delicious notes of prune, fruit cake and marzipan.
