There’s a pleasing vibrancy to this harmonious red, with supple tannins and light acidity buoying flavors of dried strawberry and cherry, violet and anise. Darker base notes of sweet apple smoke and fig cake push through on the finish.

Wild berry, eucalyptus and Mediterranean scrub aromas form the nose on this poised, focused red. Polished and svelte, the racy palate offers juicy strawberry, red cherry and star anise before a saline close. Lithe, fine-grained tannins and vibrant acidity provide balance.

The 2016 Etna Rosso Animardente is dusty and coy, giving up only nuances of dried black cherries, roses and hints of cedar. It’s a silky and pure expression with subtle notes of strawberry and inner florals. Fine tannins come forward through the finale, as this resonates on tart red berries and mineral tones.

The 2018 Etna Rosso Animardente mixes hints of sour citrus, spicy florals and tart cherries to create an alluring display. It shows soft textures and a juicy expression of Nerello Mascalese fruit, tinged with salty minerals as inner rose tones form toward the close. Fine tannins linger under an air of licorice and hard red candies, as this tapers off lightly structured and quite pleasant.

The wine is a fruit-forward rendering of Etna Rosso, immediately appealing for its flavors of sour cherry and plum. Those flavors take a savory turn with air as the wine’s rustic tannins enclose the finish.
