Etna Rosso DOC Krasì Riserva 2007
Ruby red in color, the nose has a pleasant spicy and dried fruit scent. The flavor is balanced and full-bodied, with a pleasant balsamic note that blends with a bouquet of black cherry jam and spices and an aftertaste of licorice. The tannin is powerful and elegant, typical of aged wines. Excellent persistence, it closes with a marked softness and dynamism.
