2014 Tenuta Benedetta Vigna Laura Etna Rosso IGP is made from 80% Nerello Mascalese and 20% Nerello Cappuccio. These grapes are grown on mineral-rich volcanic soils, in vineyards dating back to the early 1900's, planted on the northern slopes of Mount Etna, in the Sicilian province of Catania. 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 refined for a further period of 6 months in the bottle. 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, Vigna Laura 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 fabulous wine will pair well with aged cheeses, assorted salumi, red meats, and meaty pasta dishes .

5 of 5 The Best Etna Rosso Ever Had May 20, 2019
Reviewer: John Danch from Chicago , IL United States  
This wine opens with a very pleasing aroma of black cherry, baking spice, a little licorice and pepper plus a touch of mint. When tasting this wine it needs some time in the glass to really open up but then it’s fantastic. Smooth, medium-bodied, with good bright acidity and firm tannins this is a wonderfully fun wine to investigate. Streaks of chalky, ashy minerality lead into the lovely, long, dry finish.

5 of 5 Phenomenal wine from Sicily April 19, 2018
Reviewer: Alan Arroz from Oakland  
This amazing wine made me fall in love with Sicily!
Loved the spicy aroma it has when it opens up, and the the longlasting notes it has in your mouth.
I had it in an Italian restaurant in San Francisco.
