Red Wine Red Wine Score: ✧✧✧✧

Etna (Sicily) The wine shows an intense ruby red color and nuances of ruby red, little transparency. The nose reveals good personality with intense, clean, pleasing, refined and elegant aromas that start with hints of black cherry, plum and raspberry followed by good aromas of blueberry, black pepper, violet, vanilla, licorice and a pleasing hint of cinchona. In the mouth has good correspondence to the nose, a slightly tannic attack however well balanced by alcohol, full body, intense flavors. The finish is persistent with flavors of plum, black cherry and raspberry. A well made wine. Serra della Contessa ages for more than one year in barrique followed by an aging in bottle of 12 months.
