TN: 2016 Girolamo Russo Etna 'a Rina (Italy, Sicily, Etna DOC)

2016 Girolamo Russo Etna 'a Rina - Italy, Sicily, Etna DOC (4/18/2021) Big fan of these wines. This one is really drinking well now. Almost Chambolle-like with its finesse, and balance of cherry fruit, minerals, and silky palate presence. There's an attractive stemmy/rocky/volcanic backbone that li...

I opened this wine last night and was quite impressed. Sean's note is spot on, though, my bottle showed a good bit of reductive-flinty aromas that I find very appealing in WB, so I was all in. Really terrific wine that seems built to age a bit. It sails on and on across the palate. Punches above it'...
