Benanti, Rosso di Verzella, Etna, Sicily, Italy 2013

A light ruby-coloured, vibrant red from Etna’s volcanic slopes. 80% Nerello Mascalese and 20% Nerello Cappuccio harmoniously blended and aged in 225-litre barriques for 8-10 months. Delightful ripe red cherry, cranberry and vanilla spice, with smooth tannins and a persistent yet refreshing finish.
