Girolamo Russo - 'Nerina' DOC Etna Bianco 2013
Wine Enthusiast: 88
A blend of 60% Carricante from an old field blend vineyard, with a whole variety of other bits and pieces including Inzolia and Grecanico…..Giuseppe thinks it is best to open and drink one day later. There's a wisp of smoke and gunflint, with dry, concentrated fruit skins, a real suggestion of serious grip. The palate has richness and texture to spare, a real salty grip, and lots of toast and structure, the salt and firmness is lovely, rich and chewy.
Pairing Tips: Fish, Seafood and Vegetable Dishes.
