    Winemaker's Notes:

    Rosso Di Verzella Etna Rosso is red ruby. The aromas are ethereal, intense, with hints of vanilla and ripe fruit. On the palate, this wine is elegant, harmonic, and remarkably persistent.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Verzella is on the north side of Etna at 2,300 feet, where these nerello mascalese and cappuccio vines average 40 years of age. The wine is impressive for its detail, with varied layers of flavor coming in and out of focus at different depths and perspectives. You might find strawberry, pomegranate, plum, herbs, stem spice and dried rose as you taste this wine over course of several hours in a decanter. Serve it with meats roasted in a North African spice rub.
