Description
 
The 2014 Tenuta Benedetta Vigna Laura Etna Rosso IGP is made from 80% Nerello Mascalese, 20% Nerello Cappuccio Grapes that are grown on mineral rich volcanic soils in vineyards, that date back to the early 1900's, planted on the northern slopes of Mount Etna in the Village of Contrada Verzella in the Commune of Castiglione di Sicilia, located in the Province of Catania, in the Southern Italian Region of Sicilia.
After Hand harvesting the grapes are fermented at controlled temperatures in small stainless steel vats. The wine is then aged for 12 months in 500 liter french oak tonneaux and followed by a further period of 6 months of bottle fining. In the glass the wine is a vibrant burgundy red color. The nose is highly complex with aromas of dried red flowers, fresh berries, cherries, freshly ground coffee and mineral notes.
On the palate the wine is layered with flavors of black cherries, wild raspberries, cooking herbs, balsamic, hints of volcanic minerals, salient salinity, mouth filling smooth tannins, brisk acidity and a long persistent finish.
This wine will pair well with Aged Cheeses, Assorted Salumi, Red Meats and Meaty Pasta Dishes.
