Donnafugata - Sul Vulcano Etna Rosato Doc 2020
Donnafugata- Sul Vulcano Etna Rosato Doc 2020 (89 TSW)
100% Nerello Mascalese Rosato from the North side of Etna.
The mane of a volcano goddess stands out on the label. Its delicate colors represent the smoking nuances on the mouth of the highest active volcano in Europe. An ancient, powerful and feminine deity: “the Mountain” as Etna is called by the locals. “Sul Vulcano” is a declaration of love: a pure wine, fragrant and elegant, that lets you breathe the energy of this unique place located in the center of the Mediterranean.
My tasting notes:
In the glass a light salmon pink color.
On the medium nose aromas of red berries, orangezest, grapefruit and raspberries with hints of white flowers and Mediterranean herbs.
On the palate dry, medium bodied with medium(+) acidity and nice freshness. Flavours of strawberries, sour cherries, white pepper, citrus, mint, almond and peach. Nice minerality and mouthfeel with a pleasant medium length finish.
Perfect with raw shellfish, vegetarian dishes, fresh cheeses, dishes of Asian cuisine (not too spicy) and white meats.
